What is a Strata? A “strata” is a type of layered casserole made with bread, eggs, and cheese. Oftentimes meat (like the ham in this recipe) or vegetables are also added.
Fill a greased casserole dish with baguette pieces. Next, sprinkle on the cheese, followed by a layer of ham.
Whisk together the eggs, sugar, milk, vanilla, and spices.
Pour the egg mixture into the baking dish, covering the bread.
over the casserole with foil and place it in the fridge. I recommend leaving your strata to chill for at least 8 hours, or overnight to really get those flavors mingling!
Take the casserole out of the fridge while the oven preheats. Bake the strata until the eggs are puffed up and the top is nice and golden.
