This easy strata puffs up into melty cheesy goodness. For added flavour, use a maple-flavoured breakfast sausage.
8 slices whole -grain bread
1 tart apple, cored and diced
3 chopped green onion
1 ½ cups grated sharp cheddar cheese, divided
1 lb lean turkey breakfast sausage, cooked and sliced into rounds
9 large eggs
2 cups milk
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
1 Tbsp mustard
Preheat oven to 350°C (180°F).
Cut bread into cubes. Place two-thirds of the bread cubes into the bottom of a greased 9 inch ×13 inch baking dish.
Spread the apple, onion and 1 cup cheese evenly over the bread. Add the remaining bread evenly over this mixture.
Beat eggs, milk, salt, pepper and mustard and pour over the bread mixture. Top with the remaining cheese. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until firm and browned on top. Allow to sit for five minutes before serving.
