Prosciutto, Feta, and Spinach Strata

"Marked vegetarian because it tastes amazing even when you take out the Prosciutto. I LOVE THIS DISH. I have a series of recipes I got out of what I thought would be a useless magazine full of ho-hum recipes that I was given for free at the Check out stand at my local grocery store. The magazine is called "Dan's real food Spring 2008" Turns out, they are some of the best recipes I have ever come upon. This is one of those recipes. By the way, I made this one time on a camping trip inside a dutch oven and it just came out WONDERFULLY. Seriously, one of my favorite recipes ever."

Ready In:




  • You can assemble the night before so that the layers of bread, cheese and spinach soak up the egg-and-milk base, but it is not necessary.
  • Remove crusts from bread. Spray an 11x7 inch glass baking dish with cooking spray. Cover bottom of dish with layer of bread.
  • Use half of the prosciutto to cover bread in an even layer. Sprinkle with half of the feta and half of the provolone. Sprinkle with half of the green onions, half spinach, and half basil.
  • Repeat with second layer of bread and the remaining ingredients in the same order.
  • Cut remaining bread into 1/4 inch cubes and scatter evenly on top.
  • Beat together eggs, half-and-half, and hot sauce until well blended. Pour mixture over layers. Press down firmly with a spatula. Melt butter and drizzle over top.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 5 hours (optional).
  • Preheat oven to 375 Farenheit. Uncover dish and bake until golden, about 1 hour.

    This would be a nice breakfast dish. We fount a little salty, but worth trying some additions like tomato or mushroom etc. Made as part of PAC 2013


I am an American married to a Desi from Bombay. I have been on Recipezaar since 2004. When I first signed up I was just learning how to cook Indian food. I have to say, it's a good thing I wasn't working during that time because then I had a lot of hours to devote to learning. It was complicated at first, but always worth it. There is nothing in this world like a great blend of Indian spices. I get a lot of my Indian recipes from my best friend, Rupali. Also I found a new youtube channel called Vah re Vah chef. He is absolutely amazing! If it's Vah re Vah, you know it's going to be very tasty. My main concern is that I am using authentic Indian recipes. <br> <br>Most of my recipes will always be vegetarian, but I might throw in some Chicken every now and then, since I mainly use this website to keep track of meals I make for my family. I eat fish sometimes, but my husband doesn't like it, so I only eat it when we go out.
