  • ½ cup shredded cheese of your choice
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ tsp ground mustard

Instructions

Instant Pot Instructions: 

  1. Spray your pot-in-pot dish with non-stick cooking spray. Pour 1 cup water into bottom of Instant Pot. 
  2. Add bread cubes to pot-in-pot dish.
  3. In a pan on the stove brown the ground sausage with the onions and green peppers. Drain off excess grease.
  4. Add the sausage on top of the bread. Sprinkle with cheese. 
  5. Beat the eggs with a whisk. Whisk in the ground mustard, milk and a bit of salt and pepper to taste. Pour the egg mixture over the cheese, sausage and bread.
  6. Place the dish on top of a sling. Lower the sling/trivet into the Instant Pot. 
  7. Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button 25 minutes. When time is up move the valve to venting and remove the lid. 
  8. Serve the breakfast strata with salsa or a few drop of tabasco sauce. 

Slow Cooker Instructions: 

  1. Spray your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Add bread cubes into slow cooker.
  3. In a pan on the stove brown the ground sausage with the onions and green peppers. Drain off excess grease.
  4. Add the sausage on top of the bread. Sprinkle with cheese. 
  5. Beat the eggs with a whisk. Whisk in the ground mustard, milk and a bit of salt and pepper to taste. Pour the egg mixture over the cheese, sausage and bread.
  6. Cover slow cooker and cook on high for 2-3 hours or on low for 4-6 hours. 
  7. Serve the breakfast strata with salsa or a few drop of tabasco sauce. 

Notes

For more flavor use a cheesy herbed bread. Stale bread works fine for this recipe and so does French bread or baguettes. 

You can prepare this dish the night before and bake the next morning. Cover the dish with plastic or foil and place in the fridge overnight. The next morning set it on the couther until it comes to room temperature. 

You can also bake in the oven in an 8×8 inch baking dish. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. 

I used my 6 quart Instant Pot Duo 60 7 in 1*. You can also use an 8 quart Instant Pot.
