“This has been our Christmas breakfast since I was a child. I look forward to it every year. You can really change it up and add any type of meat, cheese, or veggies you like. This can easily be a vegetation dish also. This dish is wonderful for lunch if you add chicken, asparagus and Swiss cheese. But, the breakfast strata brings back so many great memories, you just can't beat it!!”
