Spinach and Cheddar Strata

Source: Everyday Food, May 2010


  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 10 ounces spinach
  • 3 cups day-old bread cubes (1 inch)
  • 5 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/4 cups grated sharp white cheddar (3 ounces)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add spinach and cook, stirring constantly, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a colander and drain, pressing with a rubber spatula to release as much liquid as possible. Divide bread and spinach among four small, shallow 8-ounce baking dishes.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and 3/4 cup cheese. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Divide mixture evenly among baking dishes and top with 1/2 cup cheese. Set dishes on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until set in middle and golden brown on top, 20 to 25 minutes.

    extremely bland. note that those who say it's good added garlic. that would help a lot i'm sure. but as written, it has no flavor.

    This is really good. I add garlic and broccoli for the crunch and texture. Next time, I'll substitute the spinach with kale. Make sure you use a shallow dish when baking; deep dishes take a really long time to cook.

    This was so easy and very good. I baked it all in one 8x8 casserole dish at 400 for 35-40 minutes

    Very yummy and easy. I sauteed the spinach with garlic. Also didn't have day old bread so made it with fresh bread but toasted it a bit. Also made it in large dish and still worked. Loved it.

    can you make this in one large dish instead of the individual ones?

    I made this tonight and both my partner and I loved it. For the bread, I used a crusty loaf of rosemary potato bread. I also added garlic when saut?ɬ

    Not a favorite of mine. The flavor was probably fine, but the texture really turned me off. I think it may have been my choice in bread. Left a weird feeling on my tongue. I used Dubliner for the cheese. Will not make again!
