Tips

Expert Tips

  • Use reduced-fat ham, reduced-fat Cheddar cheese and fat-free (skim) milk for 9 grams of fat and 280 calories per serving.
  • Use 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese for the Cheddar cheese.
  • The strata can be assembled and baked without refrigerating. After pouring the egg mixture over the bread, sprinkle with paprika and bake as directed in step 4.
  • Slices of whole grain or whole wheat bread also make a good strata. And for a real flavor change, use slices of raisin-cinnamon bread.
  • Cut 6 slices bread diagonally in half. Arrange on top of onions, overlapping the slices slightly.
