spinach and cheddar strata... 30 minutes

the goods:

1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
10 ounces spinach
3 cups day-old bread crumbs (1 inch)
5 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup whole milk
1 and 1/4 cups grated white cheddar (3 ounces)

Preheat oven oven to 400 degrees. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Add spinach and cook, stirring constantly, until wilted, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a coriander and drain, pressing with a rubber spatula to release as much liquid as possible.

Divide bread and spinach among four small, shallow, 8-ounce baking dishes (or an 8-inch square baking dish).

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and 3/4 cup cheese. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Divide mixture evenly among baking dishes and top with remaining cheese.

Set dishes on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until set in middle and golden brown on top, 20 to 25 minutes (35 minutes for 8-inch baking dish).
