Sicilian Skillet Strata

6   oz (175 g) French bread (4 cups/1 L cubed)
1   medium green bell pepper
3   green onions with tops
1   tsp (5 mL) olive oil
3   garlic cloves, pressed
12   eggs
1/2   cup (125 mL) heavy whipping cream
1/2   tsp (2 mL) each salt and coarsely ground black pepper
8   slices cooked bacon, coarsely crumbled (see Cook's Tip)
4   oz (125 g) fontina cheese
1/2   cup (125 mL) grape tomatoes, quartered
   Chopped fresh basil leaves (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Using Bread Knife, cut bread into 1/2-in. (1-cm) cubes. In Executive (12-in./30-cm) Skillet (do not use stainless cookware), toast bread cubes over medium heat 45 minutes or until light golden brown, stirring occasionally. Place bread cubes in medium Colander; shake out excess crumbs. Set aside.
  2. Coarsely chop bell pepper with Food Chopper. Thinly slice onions with Chef's Knife. Heat oil in Skillet over medium heat 13 minutes or until shimmering. Add bell pepper, onions and garlic pressed with Garlic Press to Skillet; cook 12 minutes or until crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.
  3. Combine eggs, cream, salt and black pepper in Stainless (4-qt./4-L) Mixing Bowl; whisk 1 minute using Stainless Whisk. Add bread cubes and bacon to vegetables. Add egg mixture, pressing down to saturate bread cubes using Small Mix ‘N Scraper®. Cook, uncovered, 12 minutes or until bottom and sides are set.
  4. Bake, uncovered, 57 minutes or until center is set but still moist and internal temperature reaches 155°F (68°C). Meanwhile, grate cheese using Ultimate Mandoline. Carefully remove Skillet from oven using Oven Mitts; top with cheese and tomatoes. Cover; let stand 5 minutes. Garnish with chopped fresh basil, if desired.
