Updated Nov 6, 2008

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1 cup sliced leeks
  • 8 slices (1/2 inch thick) French bread, cut into 1-inch squares (5 cups)
  • 1 cup chopped cooked turkey or chicken
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 ounces)
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Steps

  • 1
    In 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Cook leeks in butter about 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until softened; remove from heat.
  • 2
    Mix bread cubes, leeks, turkey and dill weed. Spread bread mixture in ungreased square baking dish, 8x8x2 inches. Sprinkle with cheese. Mix remaining ingredients; pour over cheese. Cover tightly and refrigerate at least 4 hours but no longer than 24 hours.
  • 3
    Heat oven to 325°F. Uncover and bake 50 to 55 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    The flavor of leeks is similar to garlic and onion but is much milder. If leeks aren't available, you can use regular onions or green onions instead.
  • tip 2
    If you love ham, substitute 1 cup chopped fully cooked ham for the turkey. You can also try Cheddar or Swiss cheese instead of the mozzarella.
  • tip 3
    Add a splash of red and green! Sprinkle baked strata with chopped red bell peppers and sliced green onions. Garnish with a sprig of fresh dill weed.
