On our dairy farm, chores often delay dinner. That's when this strata comes in handy. I'll prepare it beforehand and pop it in the oven for a quick and easy meal.

  • 12 slices buttered bread
  • 2-1/4 cups (10 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 3 cups frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and drained
  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Using a doughnut cutter, cut 12 rings and holes from bread; set aside. Tear bread scraps and place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with 2 cups cheese, broccoli and chicken. Arrange rings and holes, with buttered sides up, on top.
  2. Beat eggs, milk, onion, salt, mustard and pepper; pour over top. Cover and refrigerate 8 hour or overnight.
  3. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 55-60 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese; bake 5 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5-10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6-8 servings.
