Southwest Strata

Rated as 2.75 out of 5 Stars

"Easy, inexpensive, and tasty. A savory moist alternative to pasta or potatoes, great as a side with grilled meat or poultry, or a main course with a side of greens. A great way to use stale bread (save in the freezer - mix and match, even bagels, but nothing sweet for this recipe!)"

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Whisk together the eggs and milk in a large bowl. Stir in the ranch-style beans, corn and Cheddar cheese. Season with cumin, paprika, oregano, salt, pepper and hot sauce, and mix well. Add the bread cubes to the mixture and stir to distribute the cheese and beans.
  3. Allow to set for about 20 minutes, until the bread has absorbed the liquid. Stir occasionally, and add more milk if necessary to make the bread moist, but not soggy. Pour into the prepared baking dish, and spread evenly.
  4. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Let stand a few minutes before slicing and serving.

I am afraid I must say it was quite disappointing. The flavour is bland and it is dry and too gooey at the same time.

This just wasn't good. The beans turned out very dry and it was pretty flavorless really. I'd rather eat toast! We only ate but a small helping of it.

I also found the beans dry. I don't think I cut the bread small enough either. Never quite got crispy as I expected on the edges, was cooked through but "gummy" on the inside. The flavor was ...
