A strata is essentially a savory bread pudding, and can be augmented with anything from ham to summer vegetables. Here, smoked Gouda lends a hearty richness to the classic pairing of spinach and mushrooms. Though stratas are usually associated with make-ahead breakfasts, this skillet technique lets you have it on the table in less than 30 minutes, perfect for a weeknight dinner. Serve with a simple green salad to round out the meal.
Followed recipe exactly, but two of us found it dry and flavorless despite the good ingredients..
My new favorite strata recipe! I used a cast iron skillet to saute onions, mushroom, and spinach, which I mixed into the bowl of beaten eggs, milk, cheese, and bread, and then popped it into the oven! It was fully set after 10 min covered plus 5 minutes uncovered -- unlike my other recipe, which was still a bit liquid after longer baking. I liked that the bread cubes were partly saturated with eggs but still a bit dry. The quality of the bread matters. This is a keeper!
Amazing lunch! I followed the recipe as written except that after cooking each vegetable I transferred it to a plate and added some olive oil to the pan before adding the next one. The combination of flavors is delicious.
Sooooo good! And not too hard to make.
