1 cup (4 ounces) shredded smoked mozzarella cheese, divided
4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped, divided
How to Make It
Combine first 7 ingredients; stir with a whisk until well blended.
Combine tomato, corn, 1 cup green onions, and coriander.
Arrange half of bread cubes in bottom of a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle evenly with half of tomato mixture, 1/2 cup cheese, and half of bacon. Pour half of milk mixture over top. Repeat procedure with remaining bread, tomato mixture, and milk mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese, remaining half of bacon, and 1/4 cup green onions. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Uncover strata. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until set.
I bought the ingredients and then read all the bad reviews about it being mushy and slimy. So I took the ricotta out of the milk ingredients and just dropped little pieces of ricotta (maybe about a cup) here and there. I think this really helped with the mushyness. As for the flavor, I feel the smoked mozzarella is too strong. Maybe 1/2 regular and 1/2 smoked. I would increase the cheese by another half cup. I used canned tomato that I drained really well. I used bacon bits for ease. I forgot the coriander. Has potential but needs work.
