Makes 1 (9-inch) square pan Prep Time 15 minutes Baking Time 30 to 40 minutes
✔ 5 large eggs ✔ 2 cups whole milk ✔ ½ teaspoon salt ✔ ground black pepper ✔ 1 tablespoon butter, softened ✔ 5 cups cubed French bread ✔ 70 grams frozen spinach, thawed ✔ ¼ cup corn kernels ✔ ½ cup diced ham ✔ ½ cup grated cheddar cheese ✔ ½ cup grated mozzarella cheese
1 Beat eggs and milk together in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside. 2 Brush a 9-inch baking pan with butter. Place half of the bread cubes in the pan. Top with half of the spinach, corn, ham, and cheeses. 3 Make another layer with the remaining ingredients. 4 Pour egg mixture into the pan. Sprinkle with more cheese, if desired. 5 Let strata soak in the refrigerator overnight. Alternatively, you can lightly press down with a spatula to allow bread to absorb the egg mixture. 6 Bake at 350°F for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden brown and firm to the touch. (Cover with foil if top browns too quickly.)
