Brie and Egg Strata

Randy Mayor
Yield 12 servings (serving size: 1 piece)
The night before, assemble and layer the casserole without the egg mixture (steps one and two); cover and refrigerate. Combine the egg mixture (step three), and refrigerate in a separate container. In the morning, pour the egg mixture over the bread mixture; allow the strata to stand for 30 minutes before baking. Substitute a French baguette or sourdough loaf for the flat Italian bread, ciabatta, if desired. Freeze the Brie for about 15 minutes to make chopping easier.

  • 2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 cups diced unpeeled Yukon gold potato (1 large)
