1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
1 cup chopped cooked turkey (1/4 pound)

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup powdered sugar

Spray 13 x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Using serrated knife, cut baguette into 1/2-inch slices. Toast both sides until crisp and golden brown around edges.

Combine eggs, milk, salt, pepper and pepper sauce in large bowl; whisk until well blended and slightly frothy. Pour egg mixture carefully into baking dish, making sure bread is soaked with liquid. Cover; refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Uncover baking dish. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes or until puffed and top is slightly golden and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, blend remaining cranberry sauce and the vinegar in small bowl. Just before serving, sift powdered sugar over strata. Top each serving with dollop of cranberry mixture.

Makes 6 servings.

This recipe was sooo good. My husband, kids and I loved it. The kids never eat cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving but ate it up in this recipe. Can't wait to make it for my mom and sisters when they come up from FLA.
