Serves: 4
Preparation Time: 1 hour, 1 hour refrigeration


1 tbsp macadamia nut oil

4 ounces turkey sausage (cut into bite size pieces)

1/2 onion (chopped)

4 1/2 ozs spinach (baby)

1 garlic cloves (minced)

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper (fresh ground)

tsp ground nutmeg (freshly)

3 3/5 cups italian bread (cubed italian bread)

1 cup gruyere cheese (grated)

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese (finely)

1 1/3 cups almond milk

4 large eggs


  1. Heat the oil in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add the sausage and saute, until crisp and golden, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sausages to a plate. Add the onion to the pan drippings in the same skillet and saute, until translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the spinach and garlic. Saute, over medium-low heat until the garlic is tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, nutmeg, and the cooked sausages.
  2. Place half of the bread cubes in a buttered 3-quart baking dish. Sprinkle half of the cheese over the bread, then top with half of the spinach mixtures. Repeat layering.
  3. Whisk the milk, eggs, remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper in a large bowl and pour evenly over the strata. Chill the strata, covered with plastic wrap, at least 2 hours and up to 12 hours.
  4. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F
  5. Bake strata uncovered until puffed, golden brown, and cooked through, about 25 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Serve hot.
