Chef’s Note:  Strata can be varied with different vegetables and even using different flavors of cheese, such as Gouda, feta, parmesan, mozzarella, Colby jack or Swiss cheeses.  Turkey bacon, tofu, Boca burger crumbles, and chicken breast are other ingredients that can be used; just remember the calories change when using calorie dense ingredients.
