Healthy Breakfast Strata

A breakfast strata is sort of a savory breakfast french toast. It’s perfect for entertaining because you have to prepare everything the night before and let it sit overnight in the refrigerator. Next morning, pop it in the oven and breakfast is done.

Breakfast Strata Variations

  • You can easily swap out the mushrooms for asparagus or bell peppers.
  • Use diced ham or cooked bacon instead of sausage.
  • Omit the meat to make it vegetarian.
  • Make it with any cheese you like. Gruyere would be a delicious option.

Enjoy, whatever flavor combination you come up with!!

  1. Just had this for breakfast this morning and we absolutely loved it! I would love to have this again Christmas morning and was wondering what’s the maximum amount of time you’d recommend keeping it in the fridge before baking? We host Christmas Eve, so making it the night before wouldn’t be possible .. Would it it okay to have it sit for a full day?

  2. Hello!! I have made this and I love it! I was wondering if you could freeze this recipe and if so, should it be baked or unbaked?

        Thank you for this recipe! Would it be okay to only refrigerate for 5-6 hours before cooking?

    Should I cut the bread and let it sit over night before making the casserole to soak over night? 

  4. I couldn’t find whole wheat ciabatta bread, so I used whole wheat hamburger buns (just the cheap kind). I started to prep this and was excited to try it when I realized the recipe required an overnight soak. Well, I couldn’t wait so I left it soak for an hour or so and the buns had most of the liquid soaked up. So, I threw it in the oven and voila! It was fantastic:)

  5. How much egg substitute do you use? The directions say to add egg substitute but I don’t see it listed under ingredients. Thanks!
