Recipes from the Grapevine Cottage
Ham, Artichoke and Three Cheese Strata
This has been Linda’s “go to” brunch dish for a number of years – always a favorite of everyone who eats it. Earlier this summer, she made it for a small group, and not wanting so many leftovers, divided it into two 9-inch x 9-inch glass baking dishes, and then froze one of them. It thawed and served perfectly a few weeks later.
8 cups of 1-inch bread cubes (I don’t even worry about trimming the crusts)
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray either a 13-inch x 9-inch x 2-inch or two 9-inch x 9-inch glass baking dishes with Pam. Whisk milk and olive oil in large bowl. Stir in bread and let stand until liquid is absorbed. Whisk half and half, eggs, garlic, salt, pepper & nutmeg in another large bowl to blend. Add goat cheese. Mix herbs in a small bowl to blend. Place half of bread mixture in dish. Top with half of ham, artichoke hearts, herbs, and the cheese, then pour half of the half and half mixture over. Repeat layering 1 more time. Bake uncovered until firm in center and brown around the edges, about 1 hour. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and chill).
