 Ingredients List

  • 2 tb Unsalted butter
  • 1/2 c Unsalted butter
  • 8 sl Day-old bread, cubed
  • 1/4 lb Fontina cheese, grated
  • 1/4 lb Crabmeat, well picked,flaked
  • 6 oz Brie, very cold
  • 1/4 lb Cream cheese, softened
  • 3 lg Eggs
  • 1 1/4 c Milk
  • 1/8 ts Freshly grd. white pepper
  • 1/4 ts Mace
  • 1/4 ts Cayenne pepper-or to taste


Butter a 2-qt baking dish with the 2 Tb. butter. Put half the bread cubes
into the baking dish. Add the Fontina cheese in one layer, then the crab,
and top with remaining bread cubes.

Trim the rind off the Brie. Cut the Brie into small cubes and dot the
entire top of the strata with the cheese cubes. Note: The colder the Brie,
the easier it will be to cut.

Prepare a custard by beating the cream cheese with the eggs in a food
processor or electric mixer until light and fluffy. Melt the remaining
butter. Beat in the milk, seasonings, and melted butter. Pour over the
strata. Press the strata down with the back of a spoon so all the bread is
moistened with the custard. Refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake strata for 1 hour, or until puffy and
golden brown. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Serve hot or warm.
