I've made several of these 'make ahead' casseroles and this is by far the best. It doesn't dry out it's very flavorable and just the right thickness! Read More

I really didn't like this recipe. It was blah tasting - I kept thinking I left out something but I didn't. I think it was because of the bread -- way too much it drowned out everything. It looked nice but tasted bland. Read More

This is a wonderful recipe. I've lost track of how many times I've made it. People at work have started asking for morning birthday parties so that I will bring this instead of a cake!I use summer sausage and it adds a great flavor. Read More

This was great. Followed mostly as written; I subbed mushrooms for the sausage and I cut the recipe in half (cooked it in a square 8-inch pan). Not too eggy tasting which my boyfriend prefers. Yum! Read More

My mother-in-law said "This may be the best thing I've ever eaten for breakfast." (I used ham instead of kielbasa.) Read More

The flavor of this strata is great. I had a bit of a problem with getting all of the liquid/egg mixture to cook like some of the other reviewers. I think next time I'll reduce the liquid a bit and it should be fine. I baked it for the allotted time then covered it with foil to prevent burning and let it cook longer. It mostly solved the problem but it was still a bit mushy on the bottom of the pan. Read More

The flavor of this recipe was outstanding - green onions cheddar cream yum. I modified this recipe for 4 and I think the measurements the website gives don't really translate well. I couldn't get it to firm up. After an hour and a half in the oven I gave up. And even with foil on top to keep it from burning the top still got really tough so really no part of it was serviceable. I'm so disappointed because like I said it tasted good. Read More

I had a breakfast with Santa brunch today and everyone loved it...it was gone within minutes and everyone was asking for the recipe. I did change the recipe a touch by using sausage and letting the bread cubes sit out overnight to dry out a little bit. This recipe is one to save. Also I had a second dish in the oven at the same time so it took a bit longer so the top finished before the rest so I covered it with aluminum and let it bake a little longer. This was excellent!!!
