Perfect Brunch Recipe Reuben Strata


You may have made a strata before, it’s sorta like quiche, but because of its construction, opens up other flavor possibilities.  One of my favorites is to make a “Reuben” strata, which is a perfect alternative brunch recipe.  Here’s the dope.


  • 8 slices hearty rye bread, crusts removed
  • 2 cups milk or half and half
  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 6 slices swiss cheese
  • ½ pound corned beef
  • ½ cup sauerkraut, thoroughly squeeze to remove moisture
  • 1 t powdered mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste


Spray 8X12 baking dish with quick release

Place bread in bottom of baking dish, cut to fit dish

Beat eggs with milk and dry mustard

Place layer of corned beef, topped with swiss cheese on top of bread

Pour milk / egg mixture in baking dish

Let sit in refrigerator over night

Pre heat oven to 375

Cover dish with foil, bake 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 15 minutes. Serve hot, with side of mixed fruit.

Possible variations:  substitute Italian sausage, salami, or pepperoni and mozzarella.  Bacon or ham and cheddar.  Country sausage crumbles, american cheese and drizzled with county gravy.

Reuben Strada – Unique Brunch Recipe


Recipe for Reuben Egg Strada for BrunchYou’ve probably had strada – a baked, layered egg dish, for breakfast at some point in your life.   I’ve varied this recipe to produce an entree more on the (unch) side than the (br) side for brunch.

8 slices of rye or pumpernickel bread, crusts removed

1/2 pound thin sliced, lean corned beef

8 slices swiss cheese

1 small can of sauerkraut, drained

6 eggs, beaten

1 1/2 C cream or your choice of milk

Lay bread in bottom of 9×13 casserole dish

Layer meat, cheese on top of bread

Take drained sauerkraut and SQUEEZE between your hands to remove all remaining liquid, and sprinkle on top of meat and cheese.

Combine cream and eggs, mix.

Pour cream and egg mixture on top of casserole contents.

Cover with foil, and let rest in refrigerator at least overnight.

The next day, bake at 350 for 45 minutes, remove boil, broil for 3 minutes.

Remove from oven, let sit for 10 minutes before slicing into squares.

Plate with fruit cup or breakfast potatoes, serve, enjoy.
