  • Bacon, Gruyère, and Ham Strata

    This casserole is easy to prepare, especially if you purchase diced ham from your supermarket. Gruyère is a type of Swiss cheese. Its sweet nuttiness enhances this dish, though you can substitute Edam, Gouda, or even cheddar cheese.

    2 cups fat-free milk
    1 cup chopped green onions
    1 cup egg substitute
    1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
    12 ounces sourdough French bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 10 cups), toasted
    3/4 cup diced ham
    Cooking spray
    1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Gruyère cheese
    4 bacon slices, cooked and crumbled (drained)

    Combine milk, green onions, egg substitute, mustard, and pepper in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add bread cubes and ham; stir well to combine. Pour into a 2-quart baking pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight.
    Preheat oven to 350°.

    Uncover dish, and bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with bacon. Bake an additional 15 minutes or until bread mixture is set and cheese is bubbly.

    Yield: 6 servings
