I didn't think this was great but it was tasty and pretty simple to throw together. I halved the recipe and used about 9 slices of medium-sliced whole wheat seeded cubed bread and I'd say it was good. Maybe I could have thrown a couple of more slices in there but I think it was fine so to see that the recipe calls for 7 slices for the full double portion is way too little. If you're making the full proportion, I'd use at least 15 slices or very hard, crusty bread.
Sunday Sausage Strata
The "strata" in this classic casserole are layers of bread, cheese and sausage baked in an egg-rich pudding.

One whole small loaf of crusty country wheat or ciabatta bread works best to soak up the egg/milk mixture without getting soggy. I tear the bread up by hand creating a uniform bottom layer. I tried toasting the bread cubes prior but it did not make it any better.
I have used soy crumbles, Jenni-O turkey sausage (comes in that fat tube), and ground pork breakfast sausage.
I think Swiss cheese tastes better than cheddar in this dish.
i use cubed french bread cubed it absorbs eggs better
I halved this recipe since it was just for 2 people. I also don't think I used the correct bread, just whole wheat sandwich bread and couldn't find turkey breakfast sausage so used pork. It turned out a little runny but tasted wonderful. My husband had 3 helpings. He never does that with my cooking!!! Would make again with proper ingredients probably turn out even better. Would recommend you try it.
