Asparagus & Cheese Strata

4 cups firm white bread, cubes
8 stalks asparagus, peeled and cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces
1 12 cups shredded jarlsberg cheese
14 cup chopped fresh cilantro or 14 cup parsley (optional)
6 large eggs
1 12 cups low-fat milk
14 teaspoon salt
1 (8 ounce) container sour cream


Grease a 9-inch square baking dish. In a large bowl, stir together bread cubes, asparagus, 1 cup shredded cheese and the cilantro or parsley, if using. In a small bowl, beat together eggs, milk and salt. Add to bread cube mixture and stir to combine. Transfer to greased baking dish; top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Wrap tightly and refrigerate until ready to bake--several hours or overnight. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Uncover baking dish and place on rimmed baking sheet. Bake until golden brown and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 50 to 60 minutes. Cut strata into 6 rectangles and serve with sour cream.
