A strata is a layered casserole – and interestingly, the dish gets its name from the geological formation ‘stratum’, or its plural ‘strata’.   In our turkey kielbasa and baby kale strata, layers of French bread cubes, lean turkey kielbasa, and lightly sautéed baby kale are combined in an egg and milk custard along with cheese – and a surprising touch of sweetness and texture thanks to the addition of dried cranberries!
