Can I bake in the morning and reheat later in the day? Need to transfer to another location but can't bake it there due to no oven space. I can re...

...heat it though since I'm guessing it'll take less time in the oven. I'll only have about a 15 minute oven window available to me

Strata with Sausage and Greens
Recipe question for: Strata with Sausage and Greens

Bring it cold and use the electric roaster. That is my backup oven for holidays and big meals.

Do you own a toaster oven? If so, bring it with you and plug in at your destination to heat up.

Hi, I'm traveling about 45 minutes and the strata would probably sit for a couple hours after that.. There will be an electric roaster available. Could I use that to bake it? :)

That might work, but because of the sausage I'd like to know: 1) how far you'll be traveling and 2) how long the strata would sit at room temperature before serving?

Even if you've baked it thoroughly earlier in the day, 15 minutes in the oven will not be enough to heat it through. OTOH, some stratas are delicious at room temp. I'm hoping Merrill will weigh in on that factor for this one. So if you bake it just before leaving, and carry it to its destination HOT, I'm thinking it will be tasty served at the temp it will be when you get there. The ones I've made have worked well that way.
