4 large eggs
4 large egg whites
375 ml low-fat milk

Directions Prep:10min › Cook:45min › Extra time:1hr5min › Ready in:2hr
Whisk eggs, egg whites, milk, curry powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
Grease a 30 x 23 x 5 cm baking dish with oil. Place 5 slices of bread in a single layer in the bottom, cutting 1 slice to fit, if necessary. Layer on tomato slices; scatter ½ the cheddar on top. Repeat layering. Pour egg mixture over the top, pushing bread down into the liquid – it should come almost to the top of the bread. Cover. Let stand 1 hour or refrigerate overnight.
Preheat oven to 180°C. Bake uncovered strata until puffed and golden, about 45 minutes. For the final 10 minutes, place bacon on top. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
