Instructions Checklist
  • Heat butter in a large high-sided skillet over high heat. Add onion, garlic, thyme; season with salt and pepper. Cook until lightly caramelized, 10 to 12 minutes (adjust heat if browning too quickly). Transfer onion mixture to a plate, and let cool.

  • Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, milk, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and 1 teaspoon salt in a bowl. Shingle bread slices in a 10-by-14-inch oval baking dish layering with cooked onion mixture, speck, and fontina cheese. Pour over egg mixture, pressing bread gently into liquid. Refrigerate, covered, for at least 2 hours.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Coat a large piece of parchment with cooking spray. Cover strata with parchment, then with foil. Bake for 1 hour. Uncover and raise oven temperature to 375 degrees. Bake until top is golden brown and crusty, 20 minutes more. Let rest for 15 minutes. Serve warm.

Changed the cheese to some gruyere (personal preference, and it is what I had on hand). Perfection!

I made this dish for Easter brunch and it was so delicious! I also made the Dutch baby pancake and we also loved that recipe. Both are very easy to prepare. Thank you Martha!
