    I tried this and added extra apples with cinnamon. I also doubled twice the amount of raisen bread which I cubed. I add two more eggs . I put in a bit of sage with bulk sausage. We enjoyed this dish for a crowd.

    The blend of flavours was good. I think next time I would be tempted to add an additional layer of raisin bread, and up the eggs and milk. I used sausage flavoured with apples, so the addition of the apple high-lighted the sausage flavour too. I might slice the sausage thinner next time but the additional raisin bread layer may help. Overall a unique meal that I allowed my young sons to put maple syrup on, which they loved.

    I love the idea of this, but in the end I couldn't really taste anything but the eggs. Next time I would add some cinnamon/sugar to the apples when I cook them. And I'll use a different cheese like Montery Jack. I toasted my bread first a bit and that got rid of any soggyness (I learned to do that with any recipe with bread and eggs in the oven a while ago). Baked for 40 minutes. All in all this set up and looked beautiful and was tastey. I'll try it again with the changes. Thanks for a great idea Lorac!

    I'd heard of strata before but never tried it. The bread was kind of soggy, which was a little strange. Good mix of flavors, though!

    This was great! Easy, and a bit different from the regular sausage strata. I used the sage sausage which is what the store had on hand. Thanks for sharing. Definitely will include in my holiday recipe file.
