This egg spinach strata recipe is one of my favorite things to make for Mother's Day, Easter, Thanksgiving or Christmas morning! It's a wonderful savory dish that incorporates elements of the cuisine I grew up enjoying. Plus, you can prepare it the night before and just throw it in the oven in the morning. —Danielle Pfanstiehl, Andover, Connecticut

  • 6 large eggs
