Spinach and Cheddar Strata



  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 10 ounces spinach
  • 3 cups day-old bread cubes (1 inch)
  • 5 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/4 cups grated sharp white cheddar (3 ounces)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add spinach and cook, stirring constantly, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a colander and drain, pressing with a rubber spatula to release as much liquid as possible. Divide bread and spinach among four small, shallow 8-ounce baking dishes.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and 3/4 cup cheese. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Divide mixture evenly among baking dishes and top with 1/2 cup cheese. Set dishes on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until set in middle and golden brown on top, 20 to 25 minutes.
