Prepping the strata the night before gives it a nice texture after baking and also makes the morning of your brunch much less stressful. Prosciutto and cheese are salty, so we haven't added any more salt.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 onions thinly sliced
  • 1/2 pkg (250 g pkg) cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes diced
  • 12 thick (1/2-inch/1 cm) slices white bread crusts removed
  • 9 slices prosciutto
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil

Method

In skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook onions, stirring occasionally, until softened and golden, about 10 minutes.

Combine cream cheese with 1/4 cup of the tomatoes; spread over 6 of the bread slices. Top each with 1-1/2 slices of the prosciutto; top with remaining bread. Cut sandwiches diagonally in half.

Overlapping slightly and sprinkling onions and remaining tomatoes between layers, layer sandwich halves in greased 13- x 9-inch (3 L) baking dish. Whisk together eggs, milk, mustard, pepper and hot pepper flakes; pour over top. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Bake, uncovered, in 350 F (180 C) oven until puffed and golden, about 50 minutes. Sprinkle with basil.
