How to Make Meredith's Strata "A Morton Family Tradition"


  • 1Using a cookie cutter, donut cutter, or jar lid, cut bread slices into shapes or circles. Place bread scraps in the bottom of a buttered 13 x9 bakin dish.
  • 2Layer half of the cheese over the bread, then half the tomatoes, all of the onions, and all of the mushrooms over the cheese.
  • 3Cover with the rest of the cheese. then place the bread shapes with a tomatoe in themiddle of each center on the cheese.
  • 4Combine the eggs, milk, salt, oragano, and garlic by whisking. Pour over the bread. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and dot with olives. Cover.
  • 5Refrigerate for six hours or over night. It is easy to make this the night before and then pull it out in the moring to bake.
  • 6Bake for 1 - 1.5 hours (I like my eggs cooked so I went on the longer side) in a 325 degree oven, or until a knife comes out clean. Let stand for five minutes to firm (so it isn't oozy - i think that is a new word) then serve.
