Prepare and refrigerate this cheese Strata several hours ahead of time or overnight. For breakfast, simply add bacon, sausage, or ham to the cheese strata, then pop it in the oven when you wake up, pour some coffee, and sit down to an all-in-one meal. The red pepper (cayenne) gives the strata a "Bite" that gets your heart started! I always add something extra because I do like the "Bite" (Louisiana Hot Sauce)!!
