Egg Strata Recipe
with Spinach and Mushrooms

This is a very filling egg strata recipe. It's one of those recipes that's really not very fancy but it looks nice and it tastes really good. It actually came out better than I expected. And more importantly, my husband loves it!

Feel free to add your favorite herbs. I didn't want to overpower the delicate flavors of the mushrooms and spinach so I just added salt and pepper. Good additions would be pinch of thyme and fresh parsley.

It can be served hot or at room temperature and travels well if you’re in need of an all-in-one lunch solution.

Leftovers can be individually wrapped and frozen. Just remove the plastic wrap and re-heat in the microwave. After freezing and re-heating, the strata may become a bit wet, just pour off the liquid. The mushrooms tend to keep releasing their moisture but this won't affect the taste.

¼ cup heavy cream

2oz feta cheese, crumbled

In a medium size bowl, beat the eggs, cream, salt and pepper together.

Over medium-low heat, cook the onions in bacon fat until softened, about 5 minutes.

In a small bowl, cook the spinach with just the rinse water clinging to the leaves for about 2 minutes over medium heat. Let cool, drain and squeeze out all the remaining moisture.

Drain the canned mushrooms and squeeze out as much moisture as possible.

Add the vegetables and the cheeses to the egg mixture. Stir until well blended. Pour into prepared dish.

Evenly sprinkle the top with bacon bits.

Bake on the middle rack of a 350F oven for 60 minutes or until set in the middle and edges have turned golden brown.
