This strata recipe included in the 2013 Milk Calendar is an ingenious combination of eggs, diced bread, broccoli, ham, milk and Old Canadian Cheddar cheese. Prepared the day before and baked in the oven, strata can be enjoyed anytime: for breakfast, lunch or family brunch.

Butter a 13 x 9-inch (3 L) glass baking dish.

In a pot of boiling water, cook broccoli for 3 min or until bright green. Drain and rinse under cold water; drain well and pat dry.

In a large bowl, whisk eggs until blended; whisk in milk, mustard, basil and pepper. Add broccoli, bread, ham and half of the cheese and toss gently to combine. Spread in prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hrs or for up to 1 day.

To serve, preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

Uncover baking dish and bake for about 30 min or until puffed and a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean. Let stand for 5 min.

Tips

You can substitute frozen broccoli for the fresh and skip step 2. Defrost broccoli, drain well and pat dry before adding to bowl in step 3.

Variations:
Substitute 2 oz (60 g) chopped pancetta or smoked salmon or 4 oz (125 g) cured chorizo sausage for the ham and add 1 tsp (5 mL) chipotle hot pepper sauce or 1/2 tsp (2 mL) chipotle pepper powder to the milk mixture. Use Canadian smoked Gouda cheese in place of the Cheddar.
