"My grandmother makes this every Christmas morning, and it's amazing. My husband hates eggs and he always has seconds, even my 1- and 2-year-old gobble this up. Perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Ingredients are forgiving; add your favorites or spice it up. Just make sure your veggies are not going to water it down." — Robynnsmom

I made this recipe for family brunch on Thanksgiving morning. I assembled everything the night before so all I had to do was take the dish from refrigerator to oven the morning of-- a great time saver. Everyone loved it, even my niece who is not a fan of eggs, had 2 helpings. The only note I would make is I think the amounts of mustard powder & butter are transposed. I used 2 tsp of mustard powder (Not 2 TBL ) & 2 TBL of butter (not 2 tsp). I also cut the milk to 2 1/2 cups. Will definitely make this again. Probably at Christmas.
Tasty strata. I found for me there was not nearly enough egg. I used 1 1/2 times what recipe called for and I think next time I'll double. I adjusted the seasonings to compensate and used a mixed Mexican cheese and homemade turkey sausage
Very good, I omitted the ham but used more sausage and added fried cherry tomatoes for color. It could also use more liquid.
My husband loved it. It came out well after 70 minutes in my oven. I used an 8 ounce French bread. Thanks for the recipe! :o)
Made this for a club event and everyone loved it! I would recommend cutting back on the amount of milk used if you prefer more egg vs a custard like texture.
This is excellent!
