Insider Info

Like its cousins the quiche and bread pudding, the strata has endless variations. It can be made with almost any firm bread, enhanced with vegetables, meat and cheese, and flavored any way you like.

As with French toast and bread pudding, the strata is a good use for bread that has become a bit dry.

Lighter Option: Recipe can be made with reduced-fat mayonnaise, if desired.
