Spinach Cheese Strata

I love stratas because you make them up the night before and pop them in the oven the next morning.

Ingredients:

6 slices of whole wheat bread

2 T. butter or margarine, softened

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 cup shredded monterey jack cheese

1 1/4 cup milk

6 eggs, lightly beaten

10 oz. pkg frozen spinach, thawed and well drained

1/4 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. pepper

Spread bread with butter.  Lay slices of bread in single layer in a greased 9 x 13″ pan.  Sprinkle bread with cheeses.  Combine milk, eggs, spinach, salt, pepper.  Pour over bread and cheese.  Cover and refrigerate for at least six hours or overnight.

Bake at 350 degrees for one hour or until puffy and lightly golden.
