How long can the strata sit?

Abby0105 | Dec 8, 2011 10:34 AM

I have a big hunk of ciabatta left over from dinner two nights ago, so I thought of using it to make a strata for breakfast. Here's my dilemma: I can't see myself getting up early enough to bake the strata before work tomorrow! (My favorite recipe bakes for 45+ minutes).

So I find myself wondering, do I assemble the strata tonight? Can it sit for 36 hours rather than just overnight? Or do I assemble it tomorrow (with 3 day old bread)? Any thoughts? Experiences?
