    lauralie41's Note:

    This strata, from my favorite new casserole cookbook, can be rustic down home comfort food or dressed up for a sophisticated brunch dish. The gruyere cheese with the touch of pear, apple and raisins makes this traditional dish something special.

      Nice brunch dish! It is sweet and savoury and balances out very nicely. I chose to use the cinnamon raisin bread, Black Forest ham, some white and green onion, pear and old cheddar. Next time I would use a little less milk, and more of the mustard and Worcestershire. I made this as listed but had to bake it for the uncovered stage for 1 hour instead of 25 minutes. I will make this again with a couple of little changes - it was YUMMY! Made for Kittencal's Green tag. Thanks Lauralie41! :)

      This was great for breakfast this morning! I used cheddar cheese about 2 cups worth and Brioche for the bread. This is a great recipe for using up leftover ham that we had from Thanksgiving. Thanks, Lauralie41! :)

      This was very good. I almost ruined it though. I used regular bread and I forgot to print the recipe. So when I put it in the fridge the night befor I had the egg/milk mixture all wrong and I forgot the dijon mustard and worshisire sauce. So I went back on line and got the recipe the next morning and fixed the extra egg mixture and added the other ingredients and poured on before putting it in the oven. This turned out great and puffed up nicely. My only change would have been to add a little salt, (used sweet ham) and a little more dijon for kick.
