New Mexican Chicken-Cilantro Sausage Strata (makes 8 servings)
olive oil cooking spray
1 pound (480 g) purchased low-fat New Mexican chicken-cilantro sausages or other low-fat chicken or turkey sausages 2 cups (480 ml) 1% low-fat milk 1 1/2 cups (360 ml) egg substitute
refrigerated butter-flavored cooking spray
3/4 cups (90 g) shredded low-fat sharp cheddar cheese 8 slices good-quality white bread, crusts removed and cut into cubes 1 1/2 cups (360 ml) Roasted Tomatillo Salsa (recipe follows)
Remove and discard sausage casings. Crumble the sausage and saut� in a nonstick skillet over medium heat until evenly browned, stirring and breaking up any large clumps with a wooden spoon. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the browned sausage to paper towels to thoroughly drain. In a 1-quart (1 l) measuring cup, whisk together the milk and egg substitute. Lightly coat a 2-quart (2 l) casserole dish with cooking spray. Place 1/4 cup (30 g) of the shredded cheese in a self-sealing plastic bag. Refrigerate. Layer 1/3 of the bread cubes on the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Top with half of the browned sausage and 1/4 cup (30 g) of the shredded cheese. Pour 1 cup (240 ml) of the milk-egg mixture over the top. Repeat the layers, finishing with the final bread layer and the remaining 1 1/2 cups (360 ml) of the milk-egg mixture. Cover with the tomatillo salsa. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Pre heat oven to 350�F (180�C, Gas Mark 4). Uncover the casserole. Sprinkle the top with the reserved shredded cheese. Bake until the strata is bubbling and golden brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 50 to 60 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.
