Breakfast Strada

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

My parents recently celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary and I wanted to surprise them with something special. They had gone away for the weekend and what would be better than to come home with a home cooked meal. My parents love this Breakfast Strada and I figured they would be happy that they didn't have to make dinner when they got home.

Breakfast Strada

1 lb. sweet sausage, crumbled, cooked and drained
6 slices of white bread, cubed
4-5 eggs
1 c. grated cheddar cheese
2 c. milk
1/4 tsp. dry mustard

Brown, crumble and drain sausage. Remove crust from bread and cut into cubes. Mix eggs, milk and mustard. Layer bread, sausage and cheese in a 9x9 casserole or two quart round casserole dish. Pour milk/egg mixture into casserole, cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake covered in 325-350 degree oven for 50-60+. Uncover last 20 minutes. You can double this recipe - just put in two casserole dishes. Cook time is a half hour to an hour longer.

What a great idea to surprise your parents with a home cooked meal. I love strata recipes, they are great for brunches, and special occasions. :)
