Equipment

  • Oven

Ingredients

  • 6 slices thick-cut Italian bread crusts removed (slices should be about an inch thick)
  • 8 slices thin reduced sodium prosciutto or reduced sodium ham
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes halved
  • 10 to 12 asparagus stalks ends trimmed and asparagus cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup Shredded Reduced Fat 4-Cheese Italian
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups soy milk or skim milk
  • salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Instructions 

  • Lightly grease a 11-inch deep pie plate with a pat of butter, OR you can also use a rectangular 2.15-quart baking dish.
  • Arrange the slices of bread on the bottom of the baking dish, allowing some edges to hang over the sides.
  • Layer the prosciutto over the bread slices.
  • Top with tomatoes and asparagus.
  • Sprinkle cheese over the asparagus and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs and milk; whisk the two until well blended.
  • Season the mixture with salt, pepper and nutmeg; whisk until combined.
  • Pour the egg mixture into previously prepared dish; use your hands to push the ingredients down to soak up all the liquid. If liquid mixture does not seem enough for all the ingredients, in a separate bowl, mix one more egg with 1/2 cup milk and add to casserole.
  • Cover the casserole with foil and refrigerate it overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • While preheating oven, remove strata from fridge, uncover and let stand on counter for several minutes.
  • Bake the strata uncovered for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked and the top is puffed and golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let stand several minutes before serving.
