Breakfast Strata


Makes: 8 servings

Time: 80 Minutes


1 tbsp. butter

1 lb. ground Italian sausage

10 large eggs

2 c. whole milk

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

4 c. cubed bread

1 1/2 c. shredded Fontina, divided

1 c. frozen spinach, defrosted, drained, and chopped

1 c. sliced baby Bella mushrooms

1 c. halved grape tomatoes

1/4 c. torn basil, for garnish


Preheat oven to 350° and grease a 9″-x-13″ baking dish with butter. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add sausage and cook, breaking up large pieces with a spoon, until golden, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and milk and season with salt and pepper. Gently fold in bread, 1 cup cheese, spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes. 

Pour mixture into prepared baking dish. Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese and bake 50 to 55 minutes, until cheese is golden and no liquid remains. Garnish with basil before serving.
