“From a Better Homes & Garden Comfort Food magazine. This is the first strata recipe I’ve seen that you can bake without a night in the fridge, and I think it has everything to do with the cratered texture of English muffins: it really holds the custard effectively. As usual, I opted for more ham, and more cheese. This dish could benefit from some fresh spinach (and really, what wouldn’t?) or fresh broccoli fleurets as a pre-cheese layer. Really nice.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Arrange English muffin quarters in a single layer in a greased 3 quart rectangular baking dish. Set aside.
  3. Whisk eggs, milk, chile peppers, salt, and black pepper until well mixed. Pour egg mixture over muffin quarters. Using tongs or your hands, flip each muffin quarter over several times until all the bread is thoroughly coated with custard and wet.
  4. Sprinkle with ham, green onions, and olives. Top with roasted sweet peppers and cheeses. If desired, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 24 hours.
  5. Bake, uncovered, about 35 minutes (45 if chilled) or until knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
