80--- New Year Veggie Breakfast Strata

New Year! 2011 will be the year to eat more vegetables. Start off your year bright and early with this strata.

Stratas are great because you can make (should make) it a day ahead! Therefore, all you need to do is take it out of the fridge and place it in the oven-- breakfast is done!

New Year Veggie Strata

Serves 9

6 oz pita chips

6 eggs

1 1/2 cups milk

3/4 lb mushrooms, washed, stemmed and sliced

3 cups raw spinach leaves, chopped

3 green onions, sliced

1 green pepper, seeded and diced

3/4 cup chopped tomatoes

2 cloves garlic, pressed and minced

1 tsp olive oil

3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella

2 Tbsp yellow mustard

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper

In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add garlic and green onions and saute ~2 minutes until fragrant. Add mushrooms and green pepper and continue to saute until green pepper softens. Add chopped spinach and reduce heat to medium. Saute until spinach begins to curl. Remove from heat and set aside.

Beat eggs in a medium bowl and add milk, mustard, salt and pepper. Fold in cheese.

In an 8"x 8" baking dish sprayed with cooking spray, add pita chips to the bottom of dish. Place 1/2 vegetable medley onto pita chips. Add 1/2 egg mixture. Again layer vegetable medley and then remainder of egg mixture. Place chopped tomatoes on top. Cover and place in refrigerator overnight.

To cook: preheat oven to 350 degrees. Allow strata to sit at room temperature for 15 minutes prior to cooking. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Slice into 9 even squares.
