Christmas Morning Strata

My darling hubby makes this every year- we started making a double batch last year! We serve with fruit on the side- not too filling, but just enough to go back an hour later for a bit more . We also use this for birthday parties, baby/wedding showers, or just an easy weekend meal- ENJOY!!!


4 cups sliced & buttered French bread, cubed
1 bag frozen spinach (16 oz)- thawed - squeeze out water
6 to 8 ounces diced, cooked bacon, ham, or turkey ham
1 1/2 to 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 can (10 3/4 oz) cream of mushroom soup (HE DOES NOT LIKE MUSHROOMS, SO HE HAS REPLACED WITH CREAM OF POTATO SOUP or Cream of Chicken)
1/2 cup evaporated milk
5 eggs
1 tablespoon minced onion, optional ( FRENCH'S ONIONS taste yummy too)

Make it! :)

Lightly butter a 3 1/2-quart slow cooker. Layer with half of the buttered bread cubes, spinach, bacon, and cheese; salt and pepper to taste. Repeat layers ending with cheese. Whisk together the soup, milk, eggs, and dried onion. Pour over slow cooker mixture. Chill for 1 hour or overnight (OVERNIGHT IS BETTER!). Cover and cook on low for 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours.
