One of mine & T’s favorite things to do is going out for breakfast on the weekends. We much rather prefer omelets, fried eggs, & breakfast potatoes when someone else cooks them. Somehow everything tastes better when it’s “out”. But, that being said, I’m always on the quest for a breakfast meal that satisfies us at home because, let’s be real, when you’re raising too always hungry, growing boys…eating out every weekend is not very economically feasible. This weekend, I took to my recipe box on the hunt for such a recipe. I also had some ham that needed to be used up. I ran across this recipe and I’m not quite sure why it was in my recipe box because I don’t know where it came from or that I’ve even ever eaten this recipe, so we decided to give it a whirl! We were pleasantly suprised and will definitely make it again, so I’m sharing it with you today! I hope you enjoy it too!
Grease a 9×13 pan. Place bread cubes in the bottom of your pan, followed by ham and then cheese. Combine the eggs, milk, salt, & pepper. Pour over all and refrigerate overnight.
Bake uncovered at 325 degrees for 1 hour.
Baker’s Note: We decided a few things while enjoying this Strata. We are going to use bacon crumbles and ham next time (sausage would be good for those who enjoy sausage, but I don’t). T has also requested that I add some onions and maybe peppers. (I don’t like peppers, so I will probably be making the next batch into two small batches, one for each of us). Also, let this set for a good 10 minutes before eating so it sets up . Enjoy!!
