This is one of our favorites when the Bronco's play at 11 on Sunday. :) Best Sunday brunch ever. Go Broncos!

This strata is delicious! We love a breakfast recipe that you can make ahead and just pop in the oven the next day. The croissant base adds an elegant and buttery touch. The onions give the strata bit of sweetness while the spinach adds an earthy flavor. The egg, sausage, and cheese mixture is fantastic. Great for a game day brunch, luncheon, or even a breakfast for dinner night. The Test Kitchen
