Cheese Strata

Recipe by Kaarin

This is an easy breakfast dish-great to make ahead for rushed mornings as it can be refrigerated overnight. Almost any chopped vegetable or meat can be added; just add before the cheese layer. If you're feeding a crowd, just double and use a 9x13 pan. This is adapted from a Mennonite cookbook, More-with-Less.

Made as directed and really liked it as the carb side dish. Will certainly be making this again. Thanks, Kaarin! Made for 123 Hit Wonders Tag.
