Introduction

This was a recipe request emailed to me by one of my readers who wanted a make-ahead casserole for Christmas day. I'll be the first to admit, I've never had a breakfast strata, so I'm not sure if I'm the best person to judge this dish, but I served it to my non-dieting husband and he loved it and thought is was worth sharing. You can easily sway out the mushrooms for asparagus or bell peppers. This was a recipe request emailed to me by one of my readers who wanted a make-ahead casserole for Christmas day.

Ingredients

    8 oz wheat ciabatta bread, cut into 1-inch cubes (Chabaso)(Today's Temptations used)
    12 oz turkey breakfast sausage (I used Jenny-O in frozen section)
    2 cups fat-free milk
    1-1/2 cup (4 ounces) reduced-fat shredded sharp cheddar cheese (2 oz RF & FF used)
    3 large eggs
    12 oz egg substitute, like egg beaters

    1 cup sliced mushrooms (green pepper substituted)
    1/2 tsp paprika
    salt and fresh pepper
    2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese

Directions

Preheat oven to 400.

Arrange bread cubes on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 for 8 minutes or until toasted.

Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage to pan; cook 7 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble.

Combine milk, cheese, eggs, egg substitute, parmesan cheese, paprika, salt and pepper in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Add bread, sausage, scallions and mushrooms, tossing well to coat bread.

Spoon mixture into a 13x9-inch baking dish.

Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

Next day, preheat oven to 350.

Uncover casserole. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes or until set and lightly browned.

Cut into 8 pieces; serve immediately.
