Reviews for Sunday Brunch Strata
"This was not great. It lacked flavour. I might try making it again with a stronger cheese and definitely some more salt."
"Question that came to me while reading this recipe and all others that ask for squeezing the water out of frozen spinach. I am surprised the industry has not made a freeze dried spinach for recipes that use spinach. Just a thought......"
"This was very tasty. I made it the night before and had it for dinner the next night, it was handy to be able to do that. Served with Turkey Sage Sausage recipe in the same issue, very yummy."
"This was just "okay" to our family, certainly not impressed with it. There are so many breakfast casserole recipes available -- I will choose others over this one. We thought it had too much bread, for one thing. Also, consider it more than 8 servings!"
