      This is a 10 star winner, Barb!! Loved the blend of flavors from the asparagus, ham, sour cream and Swiss cheese cubes. YUM! Did substitute some left-over Hawaiian Bread for the English muffins which blended nicely with the nutty taste of the Swiss. Made for the Asparagus event in Spanish Forum.

      What a great recipe! I didn't have English muffins on hand, so I just used day-old homemade white bread toasted and cubed. We chose the swiss cheese, fresh asparagus, and cubed cooked ham. It was super delish! Thanks for this wonderful new staple in our breakfast routine!

      Wow, this is really great! Preparing a strata is such a great way to use up leftover stale bread-- in my case I used stale Italian bread. I used half gruyere and half parmigiana reggiano cheese. Went with the asparagus and no meat (didn't have any). I also added some freshly ground nutmeg and some cayenne pepper for a bit more spice. I loved the way this baked up (and truth be told, it doesn't really need to soak all that long...I soaked the bread in the egg mixture for about 10 minutes before baking for 45 min at 350F). My husband loved it too. Will certainly prepare this again. Thanks!
