Notes and tips for this vegetable strata recipe:
- You can make this recipe either right away or prepare it ahead of time and store it in the fridge. If making it ahead of time, make sure to place the dish on the counter as the oven is being heated.
- I used chicken sausage for this recipe, you can easily substitute it with vegetarian sausage or simply leave it out completely.
- Sourdough is great for strata especially if it's a day old. You can also use sliced bread instead of sourdough.
- The cooking time is between 45 minutes to an hour. If the cheese is melted and golden after 30 minutes, cover loosely with foil and cook for an additional 15 minutes.

I made this based on what I had. Multigrain bread, no sausage, and sauteed onions, garlic, spinach, and broccoli as well as olives. I seasoned with Mrs Dash, paprika, pepper, and seasoning salt. This turned out alright but a bit dry and lacking in flavour. I'll try again with more seasoning and eggs/milk. Thanks for the base recipe.
