How to Make It

  2. Combine milk and next 6 ingredients (milk through eggs) in a blender, and process until smooth. Pour over bread layers. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate 8 hours.

  3. Preheat oven to 350°.

  4. Uncover; sprinkle strata with pumpkin seeds, if desired. Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 5 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
