strata or something like it


i love strata for breakfast. typically, it is not one of those simple whip it together type of dishes but the other morning i proved that theory wrong and with some leftover french bread bits was inspired to create this simple strata. delicious, healthy and easy!

  • a handful of day old bread bits torn up
  • four eggs
  • two tbsp fat free cream cheese
  • handful chopped chives
  • handful chopped baby tomatoes
  • an english breakfast sausages sliced
  • a handful of shredded cheddar cheese
  • a cup or so of milk
  • salt, pepper and red chilli flakes to taste
sauté chives, sausage and tomatoes in a bit of olive oil until light brown. while it is browning, in a mixing bowl beat eggs with milk and softened cream cheese. arrange bread evenly in a shallow, greased baking dish and add sauteed ingredients. then soak with wet ingredients top with cheese, salt, pepper and chilli flakes and let sit in the fridge for an hour. pop it in the oven at 350 and watch it until the cheese bubbles and browns (15-20 mins). enjoy <3
