Breakfast Strata

The Sunday breakfast recipe you didn’t know you needed.

“Stratas are a great way to clean out your fridge and use up leftovers. Use whatever cooked meats you have on hand, vegetables that are starting to go, and that stale loaf of bread in your pantry. Soaked in an egg, milk, and cheese mixture and baked until light and fluffy, it’s a satisfying breakfast.”
