12 slices of challah or egg bread
6 slices of ham
4-5 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tsp dried oregano
3 plum tomatoes thinly sliced
1/4 tsp each of salt & pepper
8 oz Brie cheese, thinly sliced & rind removed
2 cups milk
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. (350 F if convection)
1. Trim crusts from bread.
2. Mix together mustard & half of oregano. Spread on 6 bread slices. Top with about 1 slice of ham & 4 slices of tomato each. Sprinkle with salt & pepper.
3. Divide cheese evenly among bread slices. Top with remaining bread slices. Cut diagonally into quarters to make triangles. If I am feeding a gang, I only divide into halves and that way I have room in my baking dish to almost double the recipe. If you make the recipe as is and want to cut triangles in halves (easier to handle), then use a smaller baking dish (8x8).
4. Arrange triangles, longest side down, overlapping in rows in bottom of lightly greased 13x9 baking dish. Strata can be well wrapped with plastic wrap & refrigerated for 12 hours.
Whisk together milk & eggs until well blended; pour evenly over triangles. Sprinkle with remaining oregano & Parmesan. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until golden & puffed. Let stand for a few minutes.
Bon Appetit! Don't forget the drinks. Mimosas sound great. Have a wonderful Sunday!
Strata sounds great and easy, but maybe start with the mimosas!ReplyDelete
This is the coolest idea for breakfast. I am going to have the inlaws over and blow them away with this. Thanks.ReplyDelete
