Spinach-Feta Strata

Here's what we had for breakfast today . . .


If you want to make it yourself, here's how:

Spinach-Feta Strata

10 slices French bread ( 1-inch thick)
6 eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
1 10-oz. box chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. groung nutmeg
1/4 t. black pepper
1 1/2 c. (6 oz.) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 c. (4 oz.) crumbled feta cheese

  1. In a greased 13x9 pan, arrange French bread in a single layer.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, spinach, salt, nutmeg and pepper. Pour over bread in pan.
  3. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours (or overnight).
  4. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center of the strata comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

A couple of notes:
  • I actually chunked up my bread because it was very dry and difficult to slice and it was still yummy.
  • Also, I actually prepared this on Wednesday night and baked it this morning (Friday) - and it was yummy.
  • Great to have for a busy morning when I still want to have a hearty breakfast for my family.

Yum! Thanks for the recipe! It's always good to have a way to use up some day-old bread. :)
