Loaded with eggs, bread, goat cheese, and veggies, this breakfast casserole, also known as a strata, is hearty enough to start the day. It would be equally welcome served with a simple green salad at dinner time, or as a side dish as part of a more lavish holiday feast.
Every home cook has at least one dish they can practically make in their sleep. For me, that’s strata, which is basically a breakfast casserole made with layers of toasted bread, vegetables (or meat) and cheese soaked in an egg custard.
It’s the perfect dish for breakfast, brunch, or dinner and embodies my favorite type of home cooking: rustic, adaptable, and easy to make ahead. All of which means less stress when mealtime rolls around.
