Killer Strata

Do you want to prove to your friends that you can do brunch better? Are you ready for them to bow down at your culinary feet? This strata is the breakfast dish to end all breakfast dishes. Lots of cheese, bacon and bread baked in creamy eggs. Yeah. Eat up suckers (your friends are the suckers here, not you. You made this masterpiece.). My mom introduced me to this delicious strata one fateful winter morning, and it has been a special family treat ever since. Now I’m sharing it with all of you because I’m just that generous.

One note I will give on this dish is that it serves 4-6 people. It serves 4 if you’re not going to eat for the rest of the day. It serves 6 if you, like me, enjoy food all day long. So let’s get cooking!

In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, salt and pepper.

Butter a 4-6 inch deep baking dish. Place a few slices of bread on the bottom of the dish and sprinkle 1/2 the cheeses, bacon and rosemary on top. Repeat the layer once more (bread, cheeses, bacon, rosemary).

Pour the egg mixture on top, press down with the back of a spoon, cover and let sit for 30 minutes.
