Cheesy Baked Broccoli Strata


* 12 thick slices of day old hearty bread (like French or Italian)
* 1 lb fresh broccoli florets, blanched and drained well
* 2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
* 1 cup onion, diced fine
* 4 egg whites
* 2 whole eggs
* 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
* 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
* 1 garlic clove, minced
* 1 tsp salt
* 1/4 tsp pepper
* 2 cups milk


1. Prepare a square 9 inch casserole dish by spraying with non-stick cooking spray or coating with butter.
2. Start layering ingredients: 4 slices bread, 1/3 broccoli, 1/3 Monterey Jack cheese, 1/3 onion. Repeat layers two more times.
3. In separate bowl, whisk together the egg whites, the whole eggs, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, mustard, garlic, salt and pepper; then slowly pour in and whisk milk.
4. Pour milk mixture over the layers in the casserole dish. Top casserole with remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese.
5. Cover with tin foil and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, but can refrigerate up to a full day or overnight.
6. To bake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place casserole dish, covered, in preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover casserole and continue baking for 15 to 20 minutes more or until casserole browns around the edges and center is solid.


This layered broccoli dish is pretty and delicious, making it perfect for holidays or company meals. Kids love it because of the cheese, of course.

Because you can prepare it the night before, this dish is perfect anytime you have a big group to feed. I like it because I'm not stuck in the kitchen all day when we have company. I can pop this in the oven, then join everyone out by the grill or in the living room to watch the movie or game.
