Breakfast Strata – Delicious Make Ahead Meal
Breakfast Strata is one of my favorite breakfast options – it is easy to make, it’s pretty, and you can make it ahead of time 🙂
My kids can be picky when it comes to vegetables, so I only put in some tri-colors peppers. I like the flavor they add, and the color is always pretty 🙂
To make it, it is really just a few steps. You will brown and drain the sausage, then mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
Once everything is mixed, just pour it all into your baking dish and cover it overnight.
When you wake up, toss it in the over for a little over an hour and TA-DA – breakfast is served 🙂
Now, here’s my breakfast strata recipe, make sure to print it and pin it so you make it again and again.
