  • Make brunch easy with individual portions of strata {aka breakfast casseroles}

    I have to admit, I’ve never been a fan of breakfast casseroles. They evoke memories of cheap white bread covered in grease, all baked together for one all too heavy slice and before you know it, you’re being offered a second just as you’re trying to swallow the first. However, the concept is good. All of your  breakfast favorites quickly combined to make breakfast for many. I’ve taken a slightly lighter and more beautiful approach to the breakfast casserole, creating individual serving strata cups where each are baked to perfection. Perfect for serving a crowd at Easter brunch, without a lot of effort.

    In lieu of sandwich bread, I prefer to use brioche or french bread. I use freshly grated colby jack cheese {which melts beautifully} and drained center cut bacon. The result is nothing short of amazing – filling strata cups that will actually have your guests craving seconds.
