Ingredients

  • 1 loaf gluten free bread toasted
  • 3 cups almond milk or milk of choice
  • 14 eggs whisked
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 5 oz. 2 cups mushrooms sautéed
  • 2 chicken sausage links cooked
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded cheese cheddar or gruyere
  • Optional: chives for topping

Instructions

  • Start by toasting your bread: heat oven to 250° then slice bread into cubes, place them on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 20 minutes or so. You want the bread to be crispy but it doesn't have to be completely crouton-like (you can if you want, it'll just take longer to toast).
  • Fill a greased 9x13 baking dish with the toasted bread and set aside.
  • Next, cook the chicken sausage and mushrooms in a skillet then add them to the baking dish with the bread. At this point, you can also add 2 cups of cheese in as well; stir to combine (I just used my hands).
  • Whisk milk, eggs, salt, pepper, garlic, and paprika together in a bowl, then pour the egg mixture overtop of the bread. If you're making this the day before, cover the baking dish with foil and place it in the refrigerator overnight; then, before baking, sprinkle the extra 1/2 cup cheese over top. If you're making it now, sprinkle the cheese over top right away.
  • Once you're ready to bake the strata, you can preheat the oven to 350°. At this point your strata should be assembled, so just let it sit for a few minutes while the oven heats up.
  • Once oven is heated, bake the strata for 20-30 minutes, or until cheese has melted.
  • Remove from oven and wait a few minutes before cutting.
  • Enjoy with or without chopped chives!
