I will be responsible for breakfast for 10 people, half of whom are lactose intolerant. I would like to make some kind of egg strata or casserole type of dish so that I can put it together the night before and bake the morning of. I can use lactose-free milk for the milk portion. But, every recipe contains cheese! Cheese is really an issue for some of the folks. I've looked all over the web for a recipe that doesn't contain cheese, and I found one - only one; it was smoked salmon based, and that won't work as the next morning's breakfast will be bagels with smoked salmon.
There must be a reason why all the recipes contain cheese (other than taste, of course). Do I really need to add cheese? Is there a good substitute for a cheddar-type of cheese? Or do you know of any egg casseroles / stratas / frittata recipes which don't contain cheese? Thanks!
