A classic brunch dish, this strata is a snap to prepare, smells heavenly
when cooking, and tastes equally divine. It’s a substantial dish, so don’t
hesitate to make it for dinner, too!
Yield: 6 servings
Ham and Cheese Strata
1 tablespoon butter
8 slices low-carb white bread, crusts removed and saved, and square centers
divided into 16 triangles, staled (cut up and leave out overnight, or toast
Grease the slow cooker crock with the butter (leave excess in the crock).
Place 8 of the bread triangles into the bottom of the slow cooker; sprinkle
in the trimmed-off crusts so that the bottom of the slow cooker is covered
Add the ham, sprinkling it over the bread to make a thick layer, then add
all but 1/2 cup of the cheese. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the onions over the
cheese; top with remaining 8 bread triangles and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, cream, salt, pepper and Tabasco
sauce; whisk until blended. Pour the egg mixture over the bread triangles,
then sprinkle with remaining onions. Let mixture sit 15 minutes, then
sprinkle on reserved 1/2 cup of cheese.
Cover and cook on low for 3 hours. Remove the slow cooker lid and let the
strata rest for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
