Description

Kale and Leek Strata. Packed with protein and nutrients, this strata is the perfect way to warm up on a cold winter’s morning.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Croutons (Homemade Is Best, See Note)
  • 10 whole Eggs
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 teaspoons Canola Oil
  • 1 whole Leek (whites Only), Diced
  • 1 cup Kale, Chopped
  • 1 whole Roma Tomato, Seeded And Diced
  • 1-½ cup Cheddar Cheese, Grated (Swiss Is Lovely Too)
  • 1-½ teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 pinch Fresh Ground Black Pepper, Or More To Taste

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375ºF. Grease a large casserole dish and set aside.

Place croutons in a bowl. In another bowl, lightly beat eggs. Add milk to eggs. Lightly beat for another minute. Pour this mixture over croutons and set aside.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add leeks and cook for just a few minutes. Add kale and cook for another 2 minutes. Take off heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.

Mix cooled kale/leeks with eggs. Add tomato, cheese, salt and black pepper.

Pour mixture into greased casserole and bake for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

Note: To make homemade croutons, cube a loaf of crusty day-old bread. Place bread cubes on a cookie sheet. Let cubes sit for several hours to dry out. Drizzle a little olive oil over the bread cubes. Sprinkle some kosher salt over top and a few good cranks of fresh ground black pepper. Bake in a 400ºF oven until cubes are toasty brown.
