Servings: six to eight.
A strata is a savory bread pudding. If you can’t fine morels, substitute porcini or another mushroom.
Heat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 x13-inch baking dish with butter. Put the morels in a medium heatproof bowl. Pour in 2 cups boiling water and weight down the morels with a small plate so they are submerged. Soak until they’re plumped and softened, about 20 min.
There is no mention of the dried shiitakes in the directions? Do they soak separately from the morels?
This was fantastic. I modified a tad with what I had on hand. I had an assortment of dried mushrooms including morels and porcini as well as a few others. I make sourdoughs and had some whole wheat left so did half that along with the white which worked really well. Really such an enjoyable dinner with the walnut, tart cherry and blue cheese salad recipe from this site and a glass of Chardonnay. I did 2/3 recipe for an 8x8 pan for the hubs and me....a tad left for lunch tomorrow...will definitely make again.
Outstanding dish. Great when you have overnight guests and don't want to have to fuss with anything for breakfast. Made it up before got here on Saturday and baked it on Sunday while we perused the newspapers and gabbed.One guest is a meat lover so I added four Italian sausages to the dish. Fried them up in the pan before the leeks and then fried the leeks and mushrooms in the pan juices. It was great. No extra cooking time or set up time needed. Added about five minutes to my prep to do the sausages.
