Breakfast Strata Recipe

Christmas is almost here and I have a great recipe to share with you! It is a breakfast strata recipe that would be perfect to make during the Christmas holidays when you have overnight guests or you just want something special for your family. I tried making it recently and it was delicious!

This is a quick and easy dish to prepare and is best done the night before. Then the next morning all you have to do is pop it into the oven and let it cook for an hour while you make the coffee and set the table!

This recipe fills a generous 9 x 13 casserole, so it will serve 8 people easily. I made up a fruit salad and some scones to serve with it and we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast!

Here is the recipe if you want to give it a try :)


16 slices white bread, crusts removed
16 slices honey ham (or ham of your choice)
Shredded sharp cheddar cheese (1-2 cups)
6 eggs
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 cup minced onion
1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
1-2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
3 cups milk
dash Tabasco
1/2 cup melted butter
Special K or crushed Corn Flakes


Set 8 pieces of bread into a 9″ x 13″ (23 x 33 cm) buttered, glass baking dish. Add bread to cover entire bottom of dish. Cover bread with slices of ham. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top of ham and then cover with remaining slices of bread to make it like a sandwich. In a bowl, beat eggs and pepper. To the egg mixture add dry mustard, onion, green pepper, Worcestershire sauce, milk and Tabasco. Pour over the sandwiches, cover and let stand in fridge overnight. In morning, melt butter, pour over top. Cover with Special K or crushed Corn Flakes. Bake, uncovered, 1 hour at 350 deg. F. Let sit 10 minutes before serving.
