What to do With Leftover Corned Beef

Corned Beef Strata - This is what I made with our leftover corned beef. I went on the internet to find out what to do with leftover corned beef and this is what I finally settled on... Corned Beef Strata from HERE.

What is a “strata”?  A strata is a family of layered casserole dishes in American Cuisine... Google definition.
Let’s see what the layers are made of..

INGREDIENTS: onion, spinach, corned beef, eggs, milk cheddar cheese, and mustard, salt and pepper

  • 3 tablespoons butter or olive oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped, about 1 1/2 cups
Fry onion in butter or olive oil until transparent.


Add and cook down:
1 package fresh baby spinach (I bought organic)

spinach and onions

1 1/2 cups diced corned beef
with a pinch of grated or ground nutmeg
salt and pepper
Set aside.


ALERT: Here come the layers..

Layer next 3 ingredients until you run out of them.
6 or 7 cups of cubed bread (your choice)

bread chunks

Layer also...
2 cups shredded mild Cheddar cheese or a Cheddar and Monterey Jack combination (save some for the top of the casserole) – I kept most of the shredded Cheddar cheese for the top (my family likes things cheesy.
The mixture of spinach, onions, and corned beef.


Keep layering: Corned beef mixture, bread chunks, and cheese..

Whisk 8 eggs, 2  1/4 cups milk, and 2 TBSP Spicy (Dijon) Mustard and pour over casserole ingredients. Pat down bread so that it gets soaked through.

Top with remaining cheese.

Cover with tin foil and refrigerate for 8 to 24 hours.

Take out of the refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 25 minutes;
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 55 minutes until eggs mixture is sort of solid.

A Close Up -


My family loved this but my son did say to leave out the spinach next time. :)

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone. 

Did you know what a “strata” was? I didn’t, but I do now and it came out AWESOME!
