Ingredients

  • Strata:
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 medium bananas, sliced
  • 1/2 cup rum
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 (12-ounce) cans fat-free evaporated milk
  • 1 (1-pound) French bread baguette, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • Cooking spray
  • Streusel:
  • 1.5 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1/3 cup)
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. 2. To prepare strata, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil and butter to pan; swirl until foamy. Stir in bananas; sauté 1 minute. Carefully add half of rum; cook rum until flames subside. Add remaining rum, 1 cup brown sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; cook 3 minutes or until bananas are soft. Spoon the banana mixture into a large bowl, and press bananas with a pastry blender or fork until chunky. Combine half-and-half, granulated sugar, eggs, and evaporated milk in a bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Add banana mixture and bread cubes, tossing well to coat. Place bread mixture in a 13 x 9-inch metal baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes.
  3. 3. To prepare streusel, weigh or lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, walnuts, and next 3 ingredients (through 1/8 teaspoon salt), stirring well with a whisk. Stir in 1 tablespoon oil. Remove strata from oven; sprinkle evenly with streusel. Bake an additional 30 minutes or until golden and set. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
