  • 2 Tbsp Butter divided
  • 8 slices White Bread or thinly sliced French bread
  • 1 Onion diced
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 -10 oz pkg Frozen Chopped Spinach thawed and water squeezed out
  • 1 tsp Dried Dill Weed
  • 1 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt divided
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 6 oz Shredded Swiss Cheese 1 1/2 cups, divided
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese grated or shredded


  • Heat oven to 375° F.
  • Butter a 8"x8" baking dish with half of the butter.
  • Place 4 slices of the bread in the bottom of the baking dish in one layer.
  • Heat a frying pan over med-high heat. When it is hot, add the remaining 1 Tbsp of butter and the olive oil. Then add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until there is some slight browning on the onion, and it is soft and translucent.
  • Add the spinach, dill, salt, and pepper to the frying pan and mix well.
  • Spread the spinach mixture evenly over the slices of bread in the baking dish.
  • Sprinkle on 1 cup of the shredded Swiss cheese.
  • Arrange the remaining 4 bread slices over in one layer.
  • In a 4 cup measuring glass or bowl, beat the eggs, milk, and 1/4 tsp salt together well.
  • Pour egg mixture over the bread evenly.
  • Sprinkle on the remaining Swiss cheese and the parmesan cheese.
  • Let sit in the fridge for 1 hour or longer before baking, if possible.
  • Bake, uncovered for 35-45 minutes or until the strata is puffed and golden in color. If it is browning too quickly, cover loosely with foil that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Remove to a wire rack. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
