Spinach and Cheese Strata
This was made for Easter brunch. I loved that it was make-ahead and this morning I just had to let it sit for half an hour on the counter before throwing it in the oven for 45 minutes.
We used a cheese that I'm not familiar with- Gruyere cheese. My sister told me it's a stinky cheese that melts well. It was good :) I also was not familiar with stratas. I read that it is similar to a bread pudding, which doesn't appeal to ME but I knew it would turn out well.
The verdict: everyone loved it. I saw second helpings.
We also had:
Honey Baked Ham
Juicy Strawberry Scones
Fresh fruit and dip (my Mom brought this, I'm guessing at the recipe)
Carrot Cake cupcakes
Caramel corn "carrots"
