Sausage Cheese Strata with Sun-Dried Tomatoes
(serves 6-8)

  • ½ cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 12 oz. hot Italian sausage, casings removed
  • Butter
  • 3½cups milk
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme (or ¾teaspoon dried thyme)
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 11 slices white bread, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup freshly grated Provolone cheese
  • ¼ cup crumbled goat’s-milk cheese
  • Chopped fresh parsley, to taste

Place the sun-dried tomatoes in a small nonmetal bowl. Add enough hot water to cover tomatoes. Let stand for 15 minutes or until soft.

Brown the sausage in a medium-size skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until crumbly. Using a slotted spoon, remove to a bowl lined with paper towels.

Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish with butter.

Whisk the milk, eggs, thyme, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until blended. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, sausage, bread, onion, and Parmesan, and mix well.

Spoon into a baking dish and chill (covered) 4 to 12 hours.

Preheat oven to 375°. Bake uncovered 45 minutes, or until puffed and golden-brown. Sprinkle with Provolone and goat’s-milk cheese. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until cheese melts.

Cool on a wire rack 5 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.

    Until Kristen open the oven door? Was the blackberry in the oven? The cat? Sounds like a cliff hanger to me!
