EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

For a make-ahead tip, you can cook the sausage, shred the cheese, cut up the vegetables and line your slow cooker with foil. Refrigerate ingredients until used.

Serve this flavorful brunch strata with warm blueberry muffins and cut-up fresh fruit.

Slow cookers vary. An oval slow cooker works well for this recipe. Keep an eye on your strata so it doesn't get overdone. The foil will help it from browning too quickly.
