5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. Diced potatoes replace bread cubes in this hearty & flavorful strata that's so easy to prepare. Serve for brunch with a side of fresh fruit or for dinner with a mixed-greens salad. Adding the water to a 13x9x2" ceramic baking dish and placing in the oven along with the strata creates steam which keeps the eggs light, fluffy and delicious. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fill a 13x9x2” ceramic casserole dish with 3 cups water. Place on bottom rack in oven. Preheat oven to bake at 350 degrees.
  2. Cook sausage patties in an 11” non-stick skillet over medium heat, crumbling with spatula as they cook, about 10 minutes. Add diced potatoes with onion and cook with sausage for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally with spatula. Add cheese and stir until melted. Remove skillet from heat.
  3. Meanwhile, heat cream in small sauce pan over low heat until hot but not boiling, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon.
  4. Whisk eggs in a large bowl. Slowly pour in hot cream in stages, whisking as you pour to temper the eggs. (You may want to surround the bowl with bags of frozen veggies – or whatever frozen items you have on hand - to keep the eggs from cooking).
  5. Pour contents of skillet into a 13x9x2” non-stick metal pan (not a dark pan), evenly spreading out with spatula. Pour egg-cream mixture over the sausage-potato-cheese mixture.
  6. Bake on middle oven rack for 35-40 minutes, until eggs are set and edges begin to lightly-brown. Cut into squares and serve immediately.
