Make the most of spring with our delicious strata, a dish of layered bread, cheese, vegetables and sometimes meat. It's packed with sautéed bright vegetables and a sprinkling of Swiss cheese. You can play with the vegetables to change the flavor profile making this a great recipe for year-round applications. The quick 20 minutes of prep time is just simple chopping. The layers of flavor bake into a rich and delicious dish that is ideal for your Easter or Mother's Day tables. Pair with roasted beef or chicken and a colorful green salad. Make sure to let your casserole stand before serving as the egg mixture is extremely hot when it comes out of the oven.
