Rosemary & Onion Strata

We've all had the typical breakfast egg strata before but this version, given to me by my sis-in-law, is a lovely breakfast that's a little more sophisticated for company. Great for those that don't eat meat too!

Overnight Rosemary & Onion Strata

I large onion, chopped
2 Tbls. butter
1 lb. grated Monterrey jack cheese
1/4 c. fresh minced rosemary
3 cups heavy cream
large baguette, cut into 1-inch sliced and quickly toasted in a hot oven on a cookie sheet.
10 eggs
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. Tabasco sauce

Cook onion in butter until golden and remove from heat. Arrange toasted bread on the bottom of a greased 9x13 baking dish and sprinkle with 1/2 of cheese, 1/2 of onion and 1/2 of rosemary. Arrange remaining toast on top of that layer and repeat with cheese, onion and rosemary. In a bowl whisk eggs, cream, salt and Tabasco. Slowly pour over arrange toast layers. Cover and chill overnight. When ready to cook, preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake uncovered for 40 minutes.
