Spicy Sicilian Strata

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Place bread cubes in a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, stirring once.
  2. Spread half of the bread cubes in a greased 2-quart square baking dish. Top with half of the pepperoni, half of the pepperoncini peppers, all of the spinach, and all of the tomatoes. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the Italian-blend cheeses. Repeat layers with remaining bread, pepperoni, pepperoncini peppers, and Italian-blend cheese.
  3. Whisk together eggs, milk, Italian seasoning, cayenne pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon salt; pour evenly over layers in dish. Press bread cubes down with a wooden spoon. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover and chill for 2 to 24 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 350F. Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven for 35 to 45 minutes or until the internal temperature registers 170F on an instant-read thermometer. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Makes 6 servings.

Omit Italian seasoning. Substitute crumbled queso fresco or additional Mexican-blend cheese for Parmesan cheese.
