Recipe: Mrs. Sullivan's Egg and Broccoli Casserole

More

My roommate Caitlin Sullivan made this dish for our Easter brunch, and it was wonderful. It's a recipe from her mother, who calls it "cheese strata."

    • 12 slices white bread
    • 8 slices of yellow American deli cheese
    • 1 package of frozen chopped broccoli, cooked
    • 6 eggs, slightly beaten
    • 3 and ½ cups milk
    • salt and pepper to taste

Use a glass to cut circles from bread. Butter a 9 x 13" Pyrex pan. Layer bread remnants (not circles), then cheese, then broccoli, then bread circles. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over all. Bake in a 325 F oven for 55 minutes.

Optional variation: If desired, add diced cooked ham before baking and shredded cheese the last five minutes of baking.
