Ingredients for servings

    Broccoli and Gruyere Breakfast Strata

  • whole-grain crusty bread ,cut into 1/2-inch cubes

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 leek, white and light green parts halved and thinly sliced

  • 5 cup broccoli crowns cut into 1 1/2-inch florets

  • 6 large eggs

  • 0.5 cup 2% milk

  • 0.5 teaspoon salt

  • 0.25 teaspoon black pepper

  • 0.5 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

  • 0.75 cup grated Gruyere or Swiss cheese


  • Preheat oven to 325°F. Arrange the bread on a baking sheet and bake while the oven is preheating for 10 minutes. Spray a 9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. Arrange the bread in an even layer in the baking dish and set aside.

  • In a medium skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the leeks and saute until tender, 3 minutes. Add the broccoli and 0.25 cup water, cover and simmer until broccoli is just crisp-tender, 4 minutes. Arrange the broccoli mixture over the bread in the baking dish.

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and nutmeg. Pour over the bread and broccoli mixture. Sprinkle with the cheese. Bake until a knife inserted into the center of the strata comes out clean, 45 minutes to an hour.
