A note about serious food allergies

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.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Slice mushrooms thinly. Trim and thinly slice green onions on an angle, keeping white and green portions separate. Stem, seed, and cut red bell pepper into 1/4" dice. Cut baguette into 1/4" thick slices. Cut bacon into 1/2" dice. Combine liquid eggs, whole milk, and shredded cheese in a mixing bowl. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  2. 2

    Toast the Baguette

    Arrange bread slices in a single layer on prepared baking sheet and drizzle with 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Bake 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown.

  3. 3

    Cook the Bacon

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium oven-safe pan over medium heat. Add diced bacon and cook 8-12 minutes, stirring frequently, or until crispy. Remove bacon to towel-lined plate and drain off all but 1 tsp. bacon drippings from pan.

  4. 4

    Cook Vegetables

    Return pan used for cooking bacon to medium-high heat and add mushrooms, white parts of green onions, and red peppers to hot pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, 8-10 minutes, or until vegetables start to brown. Season with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

  5. 5

    Assemble and Bake Strata

    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!).

  6. 6

    Plate the Dish

    You can serve strata directly out of pan: wrap a kitchen towel around hot handle of pan as a reminder not to grab it. Serve with extra toasted baguettes.
