A question about a recipe: Strata with Sausage and Greens

I have a question about the recipe "Strata with Sausage and Greens" from Merrill Stubbs. Oops! I'm just seeing the "refrigerate overnight, or for at least 6 hours" bit and I don't have more than a half hour…how do you think this will affect the dish?

It really should chill for at least a couple of hours before you bake it -- otherwise the custard won't soak completely into the bread, and you'll have an uneven texture.

Thank you! I ended up saving it for the next day so it was chilled overnight. I measured everything, but I didn't seem to have enough custard to filling. It looks dry. I'm sure it will be delicious! In the oven now...

Hope it turned out okay! This has slightly less custard than some stratas -- which is why the resting time is really important so it can really soak onto the bread. I like the top a little crisp, so that's why I do it this way!

It was delicious, Merrill. And, I'm in total agreement with you that the crisp top works. I'll be putting this in the regular rotation.
