  • Lay slices of bread in the bottom of the prepared pan in a single layer, trimming and filling in gaps as necessary. Spread 1 cup Cheddar cheese, onion, green bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, red bell pepper, and bacon on top, in that order.

  • Whisk eggs, sour cream, mustard, seasoning blend, salt, and pepper together in a bowl until well combined. Pour mixture over bread, making sure to soak the top layer.

  • Cover baking pan and refrigerate strata at least 8 hours.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Uncover strata and bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes.

  • Sprinkle remaining Cheddar cheese evenly on top and return to the hot oven. Bake until Cheddar cheese is melted, 10 to 15 minutes more.

  • Let strata stand 5 minutes before serving.

Tips

Cook's Note:

If you match the way you lay the bread slices, it's much easier to cut this into servings.
