This overnight strata makes dinner or brunch the next day so simple! Since it should be prepared in advance, all you have to do when you want to eat it is pop it in the oven, making it easy to serve a crowd! This recipe comes to us from our friends at the United States Potato Board and was developed by Jackie Newgent, RD.
Cooking Tip of the Week: Melting butter and olive oil together allows you to add the flavor of butter to your dish while the olive oil keeps it from burning.
Food for Thought: Look for tricolor potatoes in the produce section. They are a mix of red, purple and yellow potatoes and are sure to add color to any dish! But if you can’t find a tricolor mix, you can substitute any variety of small potato labeled “creamer.” These potatoes are small because they are harvested early, leading to a creamier texture than older potatoes.

Adult: In a nonstick Dutch oven or large deep skillet, melt the butter with the oil over medium-high heat.

Together: Add the spinach a large handful at a time and toss using tongs until wilted, about 2 1/2 minutes.
Together: Add 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and, if using, the nutmeg and toss to combine. Set aside.
Kid: Evenly arrange half of the bread pieces in the baking dish.
Together: In order, evenly top with half of the spinach-potato mixture, half of the cheeses, and the remaining bread pieces, potato-spinach mixture, and cheeses.
