You're probably sitting there asking yourself, "What on earth is a strata?" To put it simply, it's an easily prepared dish that is perfect for your Three King's brunch. It’s like a giant sandwich, shaped as bread pudding, that is baked at the last minute and generally served for breakfast on special holidays like this one.
All the work should be done the night before. Prepare your ingredients and build the strata, which you should then refrigerate overnight. The next day all you have to do is take it out and bake for approximately one hour. You can prepare and bake it on the same day, but letting it sit overnight will give it a very special texture.
This is a very versatile dish that allows to you to use any ingredients you like. You can opt for a completely vegetarian version or add bacon, ham, chorizo, chicken, and so on. I have used fresh artichoke hearts, but you can also use frozen or canned heart, which will save you time. The same goes for the spinach: you can use either fresh or frozen.
