I ave this a five star rating, I don't know why they are not showing on my 1st comment.

I made this for breakfast this morning and it turned out great. I didn't make it the night before, I got up early and made it and placed in the fridge for 1 hour. It was still great. I don't know if it would be any different the overnight way because I haven't tired that way yet. The one hour way came out very good for me.

I made this for a Sunday morning brunch on a very cold morning and it came out perfect. This was the first time I ever made any kind of egg bake in a slow cooker and I could not be more pleased. The eggs stayed moist and delicious.I used monterey jack cheese instead of cheddar and did not use the scallions. It appealed to everyone.

Slow cooker? It says on my recipe 350 degree oven.

Can you freeze this, then defrost night before you bake the next morning.

Hi there! We do not recommend freezing this dish before you cook it, as the recipe would become too watery. Enjoy!

Wow, will be making this. We love stratas. Many thanks.

Very tasty recipe!! I like adding some chopped boiled potatoes also.
