  1. In a 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray, layer half of the bread cubes, half of the leeks and half of the red pepper, 3/4 cup Swiss cheese and 3/4 cup cheddar cheese. Repeat layers once.
  2. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, beer, garlic, salt and pepper. Pour over cheese. Cover with plastic wrap. Weigh strata down with a slightly smaller baking dish. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  3. Remove strata from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 40-45 minutes or until center is set and a thermometer reads 160 degrees F. Let stand for 5-10 minutes before cutting.

My husband and I made this weekly for two months in the early winter of 09. We'd make this on Saturday night, cook it on Sunday and take a portion with us to work for the rest of the week. Eve...

Fantastic brunch dish - only thing I changed was to increase the leeks to 3. I hosted two brunches in one weekend, and made 2 different stratas from allrecipes - this one and the french toast on...

So good. I made this for my family's father's day brunch, and they all adored it. I followed the recipe pretty exactly, but left out the red pepper. It was delicious.

I of course didn't read the part where I was supposed to let the strata refrigerate (2 hours to overnight) until I was in the middle of making it, and the family was waiting for dinner! I presse...

I would give this ten stars if I could.I love this!!! It is the best strata I have ever had. Made it for a brunch party and everyone was asking for the recipe. Thanks!
