Insider Info

This easy and yummy make ahead egg dish is perfect for brunch, dinner and family get-togethers.

Like its cousins the quiche and bread pudding, the strata has endless variations. It can be made with almost any firm bread, enhanced with vegetables, meat and cheese, and flavored any way you like.

As with French toast and bread pudding, the strata is a good use for bread that has become a bit dry.

Substitute: 6 strips turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled, can be substituted for the Canadian-style bacon.
