Coco's Strata

READY IN: 1hr
Recipe by Chef Leenda

This is a really simple breakfast or main dish egg strata. It is my daughter's (Coco) favorite. It isn't fancy, but easy to do, great for a make-ahead meal and tastes great! I hope you like it.

This was really good. I had to change it up a little because I didn't have sausage, only some canned ham, and I used some artisan garlic for the bread. I added some chopped red pepper, onion, and fresh mushrooms as well. I don't usually like to review a recipe that I've changed so much but in this case I felt it was ok to because the basic recipe is what counts, and this worked very well for me. I assembled it the night before and after I got everything but the egg mixture in I realized something awful, I'd forgotten to spray the pan with pam first! Oh well, too late now, I added a tablespoon of oil to the eggs and prayed. It turned out great and didn't stick at all. This is a recipe you can play around with a lot and still have wonderful results. Thank you so much!
