This is something even the littlest kids can help prepare, since somebody has to tear up the bread.
Beat eggs, milk butter, mustard, paprika and salt in a large bowl with a wire whisk until well blended. Add bread and cheese; mix well. Pour into lightly greased 12 × 8 baking dish; cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 325degrees, take the baking dish out of the refrigerator and uncover the unbaked strata. Bake 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Decorate with fresh herbs or edible flowers and serve warm.
