These stratas are sure to become a family favourite. Wake up to a delicious aroma by making them the night before and baking them in the morning.
2 slices whole grain bread
375 mL (1 ½ cups) chopped cooked broccoli
125 mL (½ cup) shredded lower fat old Cheddar or Swiss cheese
60 mL (¼ cup) chopped cooked turkey
30 mL (2 tbsp) chopped fresh parsley
190 mL (¾ cup) skim milk
5 mL (1 tsp) Dijon mustard
Pinch of ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 190 °C (375 °F).
Cut bread into 1 cm (½ inch) cubes using a serrated knife and place in a large bowl. Mix in broccoli, cheese, turkey and parsley. Divide among four 250 mL (1 cup) ovenproof ramekins or bowls, and place on a small baking sheet.
In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, mustard, and pepper until well combined. Gently pour over top of each bread mixture; press down gently with a fork so the bread absorbs the egg mixture. Let stand for 15 minutes or alternatively, cover and refrigerate for up to 12 hours.
Bake in preheated oven for about 35 minutes or until puffed and edges are golden, and a knife inserted in centre comes out clean. Use a digital food thermometer to check that the eggs have reached an internal temperature of 74°C (165°F).
