If you’ve never made a strata before, this is your MOMENT! It’s a bread / egg custard mixture that gets baked to golden brown perfection with all the cheesy bits and any kind of add-ins you prefer. I’m going with a spinach artichoke theme because hello, duh, it’s amazing and who doesn’t love that combo. Once it’s baked, you dish out servings to your friends and fam and let everyone go to town! The Spinach Artichoke Strata is total perfection!

And because we’re extra here on WGC…

we’re making it with the new Pyrex Deep baking dishes so we can have even more delicious goodness in each bite! And it serves more people so you can make it, pop the top on and bring it to a friend’s house for brunch and be the star of the show.

The new Pyrex Deep baking dishes are the deepest glass baking dish sold in the US which means you can fit 50% of whatever recipe you are making than your current glass bakeware. Brilliant in the case of this strata! But also if you’re making anything that requires layers and layers of goodness. Maybe it’s now a 14 layered dip instead of 7! Or a few extra layers of your favorite lasagna, or an extra deep carrot cake because MORE IS MORE. You can stack it, pack it, stuff it and love it forever and ever! So grab a few new baking dishes either online or at your local Walmart and get busy baking + making!

Spinach Artichoke Strata

5 from 3 votes


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil plus more as needed
  • 1 yellow onion sliced
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 lb. fresh spinach
  • 1 15- ounce can artichoke hearts drained and quartered
  • 1 1/2- lb. loaf french bread bread torn or cut into 1-inch squares and toasted (about 9 cups)
  • 2 cups Gruyère cheese grated
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 10 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups heavy cream


  • Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onion and season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until caramelized, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
  • In the same pan over medium heat, add an extra 1/2 tablespoon of the olive oil. Add half of the spinach, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a colander. Repeat with another 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil and the remaining spinach. Using a rubber spatula, press out the excess moisture once it’s all cooked.
  • In a large bowl, toss together the toasted bread, caramelized onion, spinach, artichoke and cheeses. Transfer to a Pyrex Deep baking dish (7x11). In a bowl, beat together the eggs, heavy cream, the 1 teaspoon of salt and ¾ teaspoon of black pepper. Pour over the bread mixture. Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 12 hours.
  • Preheat an oven to 350°F.
  • Transfer the Pyrex, foil and all, into the oven and bake for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, remove the foil and continue baking until the top is browned and the strata is cooked through, 40 to 50 minutes more.

    This really looks yummy. I love the deeper dish design. I sometimes have problems with lasagna etc, bubbling over, and this would solve that easily. I must add this to my kitchen must haves!

  2. Katrijn

    What size pan should I use if I don’t have the Pyrex Deep? 9 x 13? Thanks!

  3. Ilene Anderson

    Made this yesterday. It turned out great! Toasted the bread pices in the oven for 10 minutes. Doubled the spinach. Can’t wait to make again, yummers!

  4. Mama Maggie’s Kitchen

    This dish looks so deliciously good. I wish I could eat that right this minute!

  5. Julie

    If I wanted to ad a protein like chicken sausage or ham, what works best with these flavors?

  6. Barbara

    What kind of artichokes should be used plain in water or marinated?

  7. Pamela Conner

    Made this yesterday ~ great flavor and loved all the ingredients together. Only question, felt like it had too much bread!! If I wanted it to be more egg and less bread how can I adjust the ingredients? Thanks!!

    • Gaby

      just cut back on 1-2 cups of the bread and you’ll be golden!

  8. Aimee

    Thinking this will be what I make for my Mom this weekend! Ever made it a day ahead to save time on the day of? (My hunch is the bread would get soggy…but maybe not?)

    • Gaby

      you could prep it the day before and bake it the day of!! That would make sure it’s still perfect

    It has been quite a year Gaby! Your recipes have graced many a party I have attended. Thank you so much! Wow. You are amazing.

  10. Jean

    Is there any way this could be made dairy free? What would you substitute for cheese and heavy cream? Looks delicious!

    • Gaby

      Whatever you normally use as substitutes for those 2 ingredients to make it DF would work I’m sure!

    This was a crowd pleaser! Fed a crowd too, with serval second-helpings. Made with aged white cheddar to accommodate a kid who dislikes gruyere, and it was so full of flavor they ate all the veggies. Thanks for helping me impress my mom today, she loved it and asked for the recipe!!
