Never heard of a strata? Well, the story goes, a bread pudding and a frittata got together, and nine months later baby breakfast strata was born! This dish is a hearty, cheesy, and supremely satisfying layered eggy casserole, studded with toasted sliced baguette, mushrooms, and bacon – so filling that you can eat it for breakfast and dinner.

    Add half the toasted bread slices (reserve remaining to serve on side), bacon, egg-and-cheese mixture, and remaining green onions to pan. Stir gently 30 seconds, or until ingredients are distributed evenly. Place pan in oven and bake 14-18 minutes, or until eggs are just cooked through and no longer jiggle in pan. Carefully remove from oven (handle will be hot!).
