This is great for brunch. Serve with fresh melon & berries. Recipe courtesy of my GF on the east coast and epicurious.com This will likely serve more than 6-9, depending on how large you cut the servings. Recipe can easily be halved in an 8x8 baking dish. Cooking time = bringing to room temperature before cooking & cooking time. Please note: The first time I made this, I sliced my bread thick and only had room in my baking dish for one layer, then I topped it with the cubed bread. It turned out beautifully. The 2nd time I made this, I had the bakery slice the bread and was able to fit 2 layers in the baking dish. I also topped the strata with Crispy Prosciutto - Baked and I have to say, that put this recipe over the top! Try it, you'll love it too.
