Breakfast Strata

Breakfast Strata
This is an easy breakfast meal that can be made the day ahead and baked in the morning. I love it because it is a major time saver, everyone else loves it because it tastes delicious!  I have made this on Christmas Eve last year and popped it in the oven on Christmas morning, so simple. 
Most of the ingredients I always have on hand…which makes it even better!  You can substitute any of the veggies and meat for what you have on hand or what you like best.
10 slices of white bread cubed
1cup mushrooms chopped
1 small green pepper chopped
1 small onion chopped
16 oz shredded cheddar cheese
1 ham steak cubed
8 eggs
2 cups milk
Spray a 9×13″ pan with non-stick spray
Place half of the cubed bread on the bottom of the pan
sprinkle with the veggies and then top with half of the cheese
Next, layer bread and ham and top with the remainder of the cheese.

Mix the milk and eggs, make sure to whisk well.  I was in a hurry when I made this one and didn’t mix them as well as I should have. You can see in the final picture the white on top…that is egg white.


Pour the egg mixture over the cheese.  You can cover and refrigerate overnight.  Bake  covered  350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. I like to uncover and turn on the broiler for the last 5 minutes.  Smells like an omelet!
I didn’t get to taste the final product as my hubby took it to a football tailgate party for everyone to enjoy.  He said it was a hit! 
I got to stay home with the baby and enjoy some snuggles…and some yard sales with my sister.
 I won’t complain!
Hope you enjoy!
