Used ciabbatta. Doubled the garlic and herbes de Provence. Added a grating of nutmeg and bit of parsley. Looking forward to a spring version -- fines herbes from the garden, local asparagus, handfuls of spinach, super fresh goat cheese. Endless possibilities. Rhubarb, orange zest, coriander seed, feta. Eggplant, red pepper, greek oregano, ricotta salata. And, it's nearly morel season . . . Thank you Cooking Light!
Artichoke and Goat Cheese Strata
To make ahead, prepare through step 2, cover, and chill. Before baking, let bread mixture stand at room temperature 10 minutes while the oven preheats. Then assemble and bake. The cook time will increase by about 10 minutes. Garnish with parsley.
