  4. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, milk, maple syrup, and the remaining 1/2 cup of sour cream.
  5. Butter a 10" pie plate or a 9" square baking dish.

  7. Pour the egg and milk mixture over all and cover.
  8. Chill in the refrigerator for 2-24 hours.
  9. When ready to prepare, preheat the oven to 325 and bake the strata, uncovered, 50-60 minutes, or until set and lightly browned.
