    List of Ingredients

    butter, for greasing the pan (or nonstick spray)
    4 cups cubed day-old French bread
    1 cup pre-cooked, crumbled or chopped breakfast sausage
    1 cup shredded cheese (such as cheddar or Swiss)
    4 large Eggland's Best eggs
    1 cup milk (2% or whole)
    1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


    Prepare the pan: Lightly grease an 8-inch square pan.

    Build the layers: Add half the bread cubes to the pan. Sprinkle half the sausage and half the cheese on top. Repeat with another layer of bread, sausage and cheese.

    Make the filling: In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until beaten. Whisk in the milk, mustard, salt and black pepper until well-blended. Pour the mixture in the pan over the bread. Gently press down on the bread with the back of a fork or a spatula to help the bread absorb the liquid.

    Refrigerate the strata: Lightly cover the strata, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Remove the strata from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before baking. (Putting the strata right in the oven can be risky- the sudden change of temperature can cause some pans to crack or break).

    Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
    Bake the strata: Bake for 50 to 65 minutes, or until the center appears set and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool 10 to 15 minutes before cutting and serving.
