Finally found a strata that is both delicious and healthy. I’m used to stratas that taste bland and “watered down” so I was on the fence about trying this recipe. This dish, however, was dense, creamy and full of flavor. I followed the recipe as is only omitting the salt (we are on a heart healthy diet) and using triple filtered skim milk instead of lowfat. I definitely recommend using a good artisan whole wheat bread and the 2% fat greek yogurt as I think they are the secret to creating this wonderful strata.
I made this the night before Christmas and baked it in the morning. It was delicious!The ingredients are pretty much easy to find, and even the cave aged Gruyere cheese was available in our market! For the whole grain bread I used a very crusty round artisan bread that I cut in half and then cubed it into the 1" cubes that were called for in the recipe. Didn't have the low fat milk, so I used 2%. It baked up really nice and it made a very tasty morning breakfast on Christmas!!! It will be a tradition to make this each year now, plus I like the lower calories and carbs!
