I would suggest spinach. A great way to sneak in a healthy veggie & it's delish.
Holiday Recipe Spectacular ~ A Holiday Brunch: Sourdough Strata
Sourdough Strata with Tomatoes and Greens, perfect for a holiday brunch with the family, and maybe a mimosa if you desire. There's nothing like cooked tomatoes in any Italian recipe, they are delicious! This could also go for our Anti-Chicken Fingers Movement Recipe, you can cook this anytime of the year. Takes about 2 1/2 hours, ENJOY!
- 8 plum tomatoes, quartered lengthwise
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Toss the tomatoes with the thyme, olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and black pepper in a bowl. Spread on a baking sheet and roast, stirring once or twice, until the tomatoes are slightly dried and browned in spots, 1 hour to 1 hour, 15 minutes. Cool completely.
Whisk the milk, eggs, italian cheese, 3/4 cup parmesan, the cayenne, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper in a large bowl. Add the bread cubes and greens and toss to coat. Pour into a 3-quart baking dish, then top with the roasted tomatoes. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
The next day, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Sprinkle the strata with the remaining 1/4 cup parmesan and bake, uncovered, until golden brown and almost set, about 45 minutes. Turn off the oven, but keep the strata inside 10 minutes before serving.
