Cheese Strata

Serves 6


1/3 cup butter, softened

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

10 slices old bread (French is good)

2 cups extra-sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

2 tablespoons parsley, chopped

2 tablespoons onion, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Dash of cayenne pepper

4 eggs

2 1/2 cups milk


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.


Mix butter, mustard and garlic. Spread evenly over each slice of bread.


Cut each slice into thirds.


Line bottom and sides of ungreased 8×8 baking dish with half the bread slices, buttered side down, cut to fit.


Mix cheese, parsley, onion, salt and pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and cayenne pepper; spread evenly over the bread slices in the dish. Top with remaining bread slices, buttered side up.


In a medium bowl, beat eggs and gradually add milk. Pour over bread.


Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours, or overnight.


Bake, uncovered, about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let strata stand 10 minutes before cutting into it.
