My top 5 reasons to love stratas:
- Prep in the morning and its ready for the oven when you get home from work
- Great use of left over veggies and protein
- Eggs, milk and bread are relatively inexpensive
- It’s difficult to screw up
- It just feels fancy
5 cups cubed stale bread
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 cups cubed, roasted butternut squash
1/2 cup roasted broccoli
1/4 cup sliced red onion
2 cups milk
Begin by arranging the bread in a single layer on a bake sheet. Bake for 20 minutes.
Saute onion and garlic in pan for three minutes, or until soft. Set aside to cool slightly.
In a large bowl, combine all ingredients – using only half of the mozzarella. Pour mixture into baking dish. Top with remaining cheese. Cover and chill for about eight hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Leave covered, bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Uncover and cook another 20 – 30 minutes.
