Reviews for Spinach Feta Strata
"I tried this because I had some Feta cheese in the fridge that I wanted to use before it soured. This is good! Glad to have another meatless option for the breakfast potlucks we have at work..."
"This is a regular on our table, even the kids like it. We are trying to eat less meat and this is nice, easy to make, filling meal. We do not miss the meat. Depending on my mood I will add a bit more seasoning, but its pretty good as is (I cook low-salt due to BP, so for us there is enough saltiness from the cheese)."
"easy and acceptable to my toddlers. they even enjoyed the leftovers in their lunchbox the next day. the 'kelp' like flavour of the baked spinach works together with the tangy cheese. yummo - thanks."
