Spinach and kale strata with parsley salad
Essentially a savory bread pudding, strata makes a terrific supper or brunch dish. Most of the time we think of parsley as an herb, but it’s a lovely salad green, too, with a minerality that balances the richness of the eggs and the cheese. The strata can be baked in any straight-edged gratin dish, loaf pan, or deep skillet.
