I’ve put together a list of 20 of the most scrumptious strata recipes for you to try today.

Grab that casserole dish and dig into your new favorite dish. 

1. Fluffy Strata

A simple breakfast casserole is one every chef has on hand.

This easy and delicious strata is sure to bring smiles to the table.

Combine ingredients in a casserole dish and refrigerate overnight before baking.

This allows the egg to soak into the bread and combine with the ham, cheese, and veggies.

This recipe calls for gouda and cheddar but it can be adjusted for preference.

2. Spinach and Cheese Strata

If you like warm spinach dip, this strata is for you! 

With loads of cheese, spinach, and bread all in one dish, it certainly hits the spot.

A pinch of mustard and nutmeg adds a warm spice to balance the sharp cheese in this recipe.

This souffle-style casserole is a lovely way to start the day, and perfect for brunch!

3. Cheese and Bacon Strata Cake

If the name doesn’t sway you, I’m not sure what else to say!

Savory breakfast cake loaded with cheese and bacon is the new quiche.

This recipe has everything you love about breakfast in one dish.

It contains savory French toast, eggs, cheese, and a healthy serving of bacon. 

The simplicity of this strata makes it ideal for beginning bakers. Combine, allow it to sit, and bake it before enjoying!

4. Kale, Swiss, and Mushroom Strata

This recipe has so much flavor and is loaded with veggies for clean eaters.

As the name suggests, you add ample amounts of mushrooms, kale, and swiss cheese.

All this goodness is piled into a dish with bread and a fluffy egg mixture.

This recipe is meatless, but you could add bacon, ham, or sausage.

5. Garlic and Steak Strata

After growing up with steak and eggs being a bougie breakfast, this strata has my heart. 

Of course, you can’t go wrong with loads of lean protein, but bread doesn’t hurt!

Every bit of your belly will be full and content after digging into this dish.

If you aren’t a big fan of garlic, I recommend cutting back the amount. The steak and eggs will be irresistible, nonetheless.

6. Chicken and Spinach Strata

Chicken doesn’t often find its way to the breakfast table, but when it does *chefs kiss*.

I suppose you could also serve this dish at dinner because it’s delicious all day long.

A savory bread bake is one of those comforting dinners we all need from time to time.

This recipe has a creamy combination of chicken and spinach piled in.

If you don’t have shredded cheese on hand, try cream cheese for a rich and filling casserole.

7. Vegetable Strata

Long gone are the days of boring vegetarian meals. Say hello to one of the healthiest stratas on this list!

In its simplest form, spinach makes up the bulk of the veggies for this recipe.

Though broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and peppers are great additions, too.

For a vegan strata, use an egg substitute and vegan cheese instead. 

8. Winter Breakfast Strata With Fontina

This strata uses potatoes and bread. That makes it easy to make gluten-free and vegetarian.

Fontina cheese is a bit of a delicacy in my kitchen, so you know this is good.

Bake together your bread and potatoes in an herb egg base, and enjoy!

The fontina cheese creates a rich and creamy, bubbly crust on top of the strata.  

9. Sweet Potato Apple Breakfast Strata

With fall weather comes some of the best hot dishes. This sweet potato and apple strata certainly does not disappoint!

It’s perfect to make ahead of time for the holidays for a filling breakfast in a flash.

Go for gold with a sprinkle of sausage or bacon and a drizzle of maple syrup. Yum!

10. Cheesy Tomato Egg Strata

Maybe it’s the Midwesterner in me, but this strata has some serious tomato pie vibes. 

Layers of bread, tomato, and cheese soak up the egg for a tasty, savory casserole.

This tomato strata is also scrumptious with zesty Italian sausage and basil. It’s like breakfast pasta baked in a pan! 

11. Sausage Cheddar Breakfast Strata

This is one of the most classic stratas on this list. Plus, who doesn’t love sausage and cheese casserole?

Hearty chunks of bread, crumbles of sausage, and cheese make up this strata.

Leftover meats, veggies, and cheese can easily be added to this recipe.

Keep it simple and classic with a hearty breakfast all will love!

12. Bacon, Spinach, and Feta Breakfast Strata

You likely have had feta on a Mediterranean salad, but how about a meaty breakfast casserole?

This strata has a well-balanced flavor with savory bacon, tangy feta, and spinach.

Imagine a bacon spinach dip meets casserole dish.

This savory bread pudding is easily customizable but delicious as is. No doubt, you’ll dig in for seconds!

13. Croissant Strata With Spinach, Feta, and Gruyere

There’s a reason you say “cheese” to smile for pictures! All this cheesy goodness is sure to have your guests smiling for strata.

Crumbled feta is an excellent addition to a warm breakfast strata. Paired with smokey gruyere and earthy spinach? Heavenly.

14. Ham and Cheese Strata

Classic grilled ham and cheese makes up this casserole. Sounds like a party in a pan to me!

There are no surprises with bread, eggs, ham, and cheddar cheese for this strata.

You could add some broccoli or spinach for a healthier touch to this recipe.

15. Overnight Broccoli Goat Cheese Strata

Goat cheese has quickly become one of my favorite cheeses.

It’s super creamy and has a mild flavor perfect for baked casseroles. 

The base of this strata is of course bread and fluffy egg custard.

Add in broccoli, chunks of creamy goat cheese, and prosciutto before baking.

This beautiful casserole is one to share with those you love. Be warned, you may want two dishes!

16. Mediterranean Egg and Spinach Strata

Take your tastebuds on a tour around the world with a Mediterranean casserole.

With cottage cheese, it features a creamy egg and bread filling. 

There is so much flavor happening, you won’t believe it’s all in one dish.

Sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, artichokes, and cheese are a few of the key ingredients.

While this strata doesn’t have any meat, you could add ham or chicken for extra protein. 

17. Sausage and Red Pepper Breakfast Strata

Throw together this simple strata the night before your gathering for simplicity. 

While the preparation doesn’t take long, the bread is best after it’s soaked up the egg.

Bits of pepper and sausage in every bite make for a hearty breakfast. 

Fontina cheese is highly recommended for an ultra-rich and gooey dish.

Though, any shredded cheese would do for this recipe. 

18. Vegan Zucchini Breakfast Strata

A vegan breakfast casserole? It tastes even better than it sounds!

This strata has loads of mashed potatoes, zucchini, tomatoes, and bright herbs.

Pureed cashews act as the egg to bind the whole dish together.

This lovely strata recipe is a great dish to serve for those with dietary restrictions.

You could even use a sturdy gluten-free loaf.

19. Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Strata

If you love chorizo, this is the strata for you.

All the delicious flavors of huevos rancheros are baked into one hearty casserole dish. 

The ingredient list looks long, but the construction of this casserole is very simple. 

Serve with your favorite taco fixings and enjoy!

20. Blueberry Strata

Not all casseroles are created equally.

This sweet strata is loaded with blueberries and has some serious French toast vibes. 

A fruity mix between French toast and bread pudding, you won’t be disappointed.

Bake the bread, blueberry, and egg mixture and serve with syrup. 

You can add other sturdy berries to this recipe, or serve it with fresh fruit on top.
