Expert Tips

  • The flavor of leeks is similar to garlic and onion but is much milder. If leeks aren't available, you can use regular onions or green onions instead.
  • If you love ham, substitute 1 cup chopped fully cooked ham for the turkey. You can also try Cheddar or Swiss cheese instead of the mozzarella.
  • Add a splash of red and green! Sprinkle baked strata with chopped red bell peppers and sliced green onions. Garnish with a sprig of fresh dill weed.
