Since the whole family gathers at Mimi's for Christmas Eve and morning, this strata, from Mulberry Inn & Gardens (B&B) has become the favorite. It bakes nicely while presents are being opened. Remove from frig. when you get up to turn on the tree lights and flip the coffee pot on, about 30 minutes before baking.*** While the original recipe lists American cheese, we replace that with sliced cheddar for more flavor.
