  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and stir in the vegetarian sausage. Cook and stir until the sausage is crumbly, and evenly browned. Stir in the onion, garlic, and bell pepper; cook and stir until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat, and set aside.
  2. Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Arrange bread in an even layer in the prepared baking dish. Scatter the sausage mixture on top. Brush with the Dijon mustard, and sprinkle with cheese. Whisk eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a large bowl, and pour over the cheese. Cover tightly with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove strata from the refrigerator, and unwrap.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until puffed, lightly browned, and the center is set, 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Good basic recipe, but lacked the punch I was looking for - maybe some Jalepenos, tomatoes, or green onions would spruce it up a bit. Still, a good start for an exceptional meal.

This was great! I did cut the recipe in half. I didn't have any ground sausage on hand so I used 6 Morning Star brand fake sausage patties maple flavor & it was delicious! My meat eating husband loved it! I also added 2 extra garlic cloves.

Good basic strata. I halved the recipe, used vegetarian sausage and a nice crusty whole wheat bread. I baked it in a 8x8 baking dish. The next time I would use a 9x9 dish.

I made this recipe without any alterations except using a different type of cheese. It was really good! I literally just made it a few hours ago for breakfast for my sister's birthday! I used butter flavored crouton mixed with Caesar croutons. Will surely make this again!

Made this with a 1/2 pound of bacon, that's what I had on hand. My husband loved it!
