This is a delicious, savory breakfast casserole. Got it from "Metropolitan Home" magazine back in 1990. It is a little different from most make-ahead strata dishes, being made from English muffins, instead of bread, and Gruyere, instead of cheddar. Tastes a bit like a dry fondue- great with a green salad for a brunch entree.
