Did You Know...
A strata is a casserole that’s made by layering bread cubes and cheese, then pouring an egg mixture over the layers.
Substitution
We’ve used rye bread, but you can use any bread you’d like—just add 1/4 teaspoon dried dill weed and 1/4 teaspoon caraway seed to keep the rye flavor.
Health Twist
Skip cooking the fresh onions in oil and use 1 tablespoon instant dried onion instead. Use reduced-fat cheese, white chicken meat only, no-fat milk and no-fat egg substitute.
Variation
Cater to individual tastes by varying the bread, cheese and meat in this easy strata.
