Let’s face it, we could all use some new ideas when it comes to breakfast. The omelet/french toast/pancake rotation can get old after awhile! Enter this Bacon, Egg & Cheese Breakfast Strata — a fun combination in an easy-to-make dish.
It only takes 10 minutes of prep time before going into the oven to bake. This is perfect for a leisurely weekend breakfast or brunch with friends or family, and it’s a meal all by itself. It smells so good coming out of the oven…
