Black Friday Brunch Series: Thanksgiving Leftovers Strata

By: Eric Kazda

In today’s Black Friday Brunch Series: Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes, we are showcasing a one-pot wonder, the strata. A strata is a classic American dish of layered ingredients, typically in a casserole dish. The most common kind of strata is a brunch dish, similar to a quiche or frittata, and consists of bread, eggs, and cheese.

We are transforming this standard brunch offering into a Thanksgiving leftover masterpiece of turkey, stuffing, and spinach (because we all need some greens after a hearty Thanksgiving Day meal). This easy Thanksgiving leftover recipe is the second recipe in our Black Friday Brunch Series and will turn your turkey leftovers into a delicious brunch meal.
