Young Fontina, a superb melting cheese, adds lushness and a little tang to the strata. And remember to put whole nutmeg on your shopping list; a bit of the freshly grated spice amplifies the other flavors.
This brunch casserole is a perfect
recipe if you're an early riser and your
guests like to sleep in; it needs to be
refrigerated for at least two hours (or
up to four hours) before baking. This strata -- rich, cheesy, and studded with onion and salty speck -- is refrigerated for several hours to ensure that it soaks up all the liquid.
