Vegetable Strata With Tomato Coulis

This has to sit overnight! I tell you this now after learning the hard way myself

about 9 thick slices french bread
5 eggs
2 cups half and half
5tbs dijon mustard
salt and pepper
2 tbs dutch poppyseeds
1 pint grape tomatoes
1 bad stoplight peppers
1 onion
1 1/2 lb mushrooms (if your gross)
as much garlic as you like
3 cups cheese (I used a mix of cheddar and swiss)

saute onions for 3 minn, then add peppers, garlic and mushrooms cooking till all the moisture is out. mix in tomatoes

cub bread

in a large glass baking dish (butter well)
layer 1/3 breadcrumbs, poppy seeds
veggies, and cheese
I like to somehow have the top layer be just bread and cheese

in a big bowl mix beat eggs, half and half mustard, salt and pepper
pour over top of strata

let sit overnight!!!!!!!
before baking let stand at room temp for 15 minn
bake for hour at 400

throw together Coulis

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 pounds very ripe plum tomatoes, peeled, seeded and coarsely chopped
Salt and white pepper

In a saute pan, heat the olive oil and saute onion until softened, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute longer before adding the tomatoes. Stir well to combine, season with salt and pepper, and continue to cook until tomatoes have softened and most of the released liquid has evaporated.

finished kitchen disaster!
