One of my good friends had a birthday last month! We had a small get together to celebrate. I decided to bust out the real plates and silverware for the occasion. That's the sign of a fancy gathering at our house. I made strata and I really loved how it turned out. It was very simple and I'm going to keep the recipe in our rotation.
Spinach and Cheddar Strata
from Martha Stewart
1 t. olive oil
10 ounces spinach
1/2 baguette, one day old, cut into cubes
5 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup whole milk
1 1/4 cups grated white cheddar
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add spinach and stir constantly until wilted. Remove from heat. In a 8x8 pan, layer spinach and bread cubes. In a bowl, mix eggs, milk, cheese and s&p to taste. Pour egg mixture over bread and spinach. Bake at 400 for 35-40 minutes until cheese is bubbly on top. Enjoy!
