Basic Cheese Strata

You put this dish together the night before, so it's a great choice for a leisurely breakfast because all you have to do is bake it. The recipe comes from Becky Ririe, a former neighbor and friend.

6 slices white bread
2-3 cups shredded mild or medium cheddar cheese
3 eggs
2 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon seasoning salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 of 4-oz can of diced green chilies

Cut bread into small cubes. Layer bread and cheese in a buttered 7 x 10-inch baking dish. Beat together eggs, milk, salt, and mustard; mix in green chilies. Pour over cheese and bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until light and fluffy. Serve immediately. Homemade chili sauce is perfect with this. Serves 6.
