Ingredients
  • 9 cups sourdough bread, cubed
  • 8 slices Wright® Brand Bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 1/4 cups milk
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh thyme (thyme leaves removed from the sprig)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh rosemary, roughly chopped (rosemary needles removed from the sprig)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (I used an Italian blend)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease a 9x13 (or there about) baking dish. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, toss sourdough bread, cooked bacon, thyme, rosemary and 1 cup of cheese together. Pour the mixture into the prepared casserole dish and spread in an even layer.
  3. Whisk together milk, eggs, salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder until well combined (I did this with a blender). Pour the egg mixture evenly over the bread. Allow to sit for at least 30 minutes or covered overnight (if you are making ahead).
  4. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup of shredded cheese over the top of the dish.
  5. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted in the center and comes out clean. If the top of the strata is browning too quickly, tent a piece of foil over the top and continue cooking until the rest of the dish is done.
  6. Allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.
