This is a delicious recipe with all the ingredients right at hand. The worcestershire sauce adds a great unique flavor to this strata recipe. I reduced it down to two servings using 2 layers, and although after removing it from the oven it fell, (similar to a falling souffle'), it mattered none. The taste is great!
