For a lazy-morning breakfast or when hosting a brunch, make this easy vegetarian recipe your game plan. Be sure to use crusty, freshly baked bread from the bakery section of your supermarket instead of a premade loaf from the bread aisle. Serve with seasonal fruit and juice to balance the richness of the egg and cheese. Source: Everyday Slow Cooker

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium. Add the onions, and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic; cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  • Lightly coat a 5- to-6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Toss together the onion mixture, bread, kale, and tomatoes in the slow cooker.

  • Whisk together the milk, Dijon, salt, pepper, and eggs in a large bowl. Pour into the slow cooker; press the bread mixture, submerging into the milk mixture. Top with the Gruyère. Place a clean, dry towel over the top of the slow cooker; cover with the lid. Cook on LOW until the strata reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, about 3 hours and 45 minutes.
