My husband and I come from large families, many of whom do not live close by and often stay overnight. I came up with this Breakfast Strata when I had guests over Easter weekend. I served it with Easy Gooey Caramel Rolls and fresh fruit and it was most assuredly a hit! Everyone wanted recipes and my husband and daughters request it often. I just made the strata again this past weekend (had bread I needed to use up) and it's always such a treat. Quick Note: I like to split the recipe and put half in each of 2 8" square pyrex baking dishes. In one, I skip the cooked onions and use cheddar cheese, for those who prefer a milder flavor. In the other, I load up on the onions and use Pepper-Jack cheese (my favorite). The recipe is so versatile that every palate is satisfied; if you like peppers or olives, just throw it in, and if you prefer additional spice, add some Red Pepper Flakes. For my husband, who cannot tolerate spicy or hot foods and most vegetables, I keep things very simple, yet the flavor is still wonderful, and the recipe is easy to assemble, too! Everything gets prepared the evening before and refrigerated overnight, then popped in the oven in the morning; such minimal effort for a luscious and delightful breakfast to enjoy with friends.
