I made the sausage version. And I may have snuck some bacon in there too. Yummy!

I didn't care for the chicken version of this strata recipe but I really liked the sausage one. I think the mayo and cream soup threw me off with the other. Will definitely make this again and might try the broccoli version.

This is a man's brunch casserole!!! I made this today for our church brunch. I can't tell you how many men came up to compliment this casserole. Now I made several and this was the men's favorite! I made the sausage variation. I think us gals liked it too but it is not exactly waistline friendly. I have to admit it was really yummy and is worth the little cheat on my diet! :)

Made it just as recipe written and came out perfectly!

I was never terribly fond of strata, having had it at a hospital where I worked. It was too mushy. This was GREAT! I mixed ALL the wet ingredients together and ladeled it on top of the cubed bread. I poked down the cubes that stuck up. I made 1/2 the recipe and filled 4 individual "boats." I used my GE Advantium oven. It only took 30 minutes! My husband and I enjoyed it, as well as my guests this morning! I will make it again! Putting it in the boats in this oven cut the bake time substantially!

I love this recipe. I've used it for Christmas morning, and many brunches. It is versatile and being able to adjust the quantities is great. I've done a greek version with red & green peppers (sweet), onions and feta cheese, and bbq veg version.

I made the spinach version, and added 1/2 a medium onion to the sauteed veggies. Very yummy. I'll make it again.

I took the sausage version of this to my morning Bible Study group and had 4 requests for the recipe! Excellent, and very easy.

I picked this recipe for a bridesmaids luncheon. It was easy to prepare, beautiful when cooked, and delicious. I have now used it for luncheons for over 40 people and everytime it people want the recipe. The ham sauce is excellent over the strata but a little salty and the strata is delicious on it's ouw. I have also served it with fresh red salsa and green salsa. Wonderful!
