6 (1 1/4-inch) slices sourdough French bread (about 7 1/2 ounces)
Cooking spray
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese, divided
1/2 cup chopped onion, divided
1 (4.5-ounce) can chopped green chiles, drained and divided
1 2/3 cups fat-free milk
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried rubbed sage
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons shelled pumpkin seeds (optional)


Arrange 2 bread slices in a single layer in a 2-quart soufflé dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese, one-third of onion, and one-third of chiles. Repeat layers twice.

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.

Preheat oven to 350°.

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.
