Cheese & Broccoli Stratta

Here's a recipe for a tasty, healthy, and easy-to-make stratta.  M made it for dinner the other night with stuff we had around the house (and using just our toaster oven!), but it's just as good for breakfast.

4 eggs
1 1/4 cups of 1% milk
4 cups of cooked, chopped broccoli florets (fresh or frozen)
3 slices of cubed whole wheat bread (remove crusts first)
1 cup of chopped onions and/or leeks, sautéed in a tablespoon of olive oil with salt & pepper
3/4 cup lowfat shredded cheese (cheddar and/or jack works great)
Salt & pepper to taste

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  In a big bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together until blended, and then stir in the rest of the ingredients. Pour everything into a 9-inch square baking dish, and pop it in the oven for 45 minutes (or until it's firm and the crust is lightly browned). Take it out, let it rest for 10 minutes, and dig in.  (This recipe makes about 9 servings.)
