By definition a breakfast strata is eggs, milk, cheese, and bread baked into a casserole dish. The personality comes from great fillings – and this strata featuring Isernio’s breakfast sausage brings the flavor. Assemble the casserole the night before and pop it in the oven for a great comfort food dish the next day.
A strata is the perfect entertaining fare for a weekend brunch, holiday breakfast, or a healthy lunch alternative. Think of breakfast strata as a savory bread pudding.
We recommend making this dish with crusty day-old bread, so the strata won’t be soggy. You’ll have a mix of soft and textured bites, crisp edges, pockets of melty cheese, plus lots of savory sausage. There’s something for everyone in each bite.
The great thing about this breakfast strata recipe is that it can be assembled the day before, allowing you to concentrate on other tasks for your breakfast or lunch the next day. Versatile, easy to make, and delicious with its pillowy moist texture. This dish will be a favorite on the table.
