Monte Cristo Strata
70 mins (prep 25, cooking 45)
10 ingredients
10-12 servings
Going to a restaurant for Sunday brunch can be wonderful, but, maybe you prefer the comfort and economy of a home-cooked meal, especially when you are entertaining guests. A strata, including this one, is a great way to go, since you make it the night before, and when you are ready the next day, just pop it in the oven.
