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!

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

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.

Made this recipe for my child's 1st communion brunch. Delicious. Plan to make it Christmas morning, as it is soooooo easy!
