I was going to make a Strata one night for dinner and realized that I didn't make it and let it set in the fridge over night. So then I decided I was going to make a Quiche. Well unfortunately I had already mixed alot of the Strata ingredients and was not in the mood to make a crust. So I just sort of combined the two recipes and made what I now call "Quicheta". My family fell in love with this recipe and it's become one of our favorites. It's easily made and doesn't have to sit in the fridge over night. It makes for a great leftover snack or meal, but mine never lasts very long.

    Cut up into bite size bits all of the sourdough bread. You can choose different kinds, but I love the taste of the sourdough in this mix. Add to a large mixing bowl.

    Cut 3-4 slices of the tomatoes and set them back in the fridge. Dice up the rest of the tomatoes and add to bread mix.

    Slice up all mushrooms or add the already sliced ones if you purchased them that way. Make sure to fully strain if you chose to add canned mushrooms. Add to bread mix.

    In a 13×9 glass baking dish coat the inside evenly with EVOO or your favorite non stick spray. I found that using a glass baking dish cooks more evenly.
