Another good idea for a Mother’s Day brunch…
I love to have people over for brunch. I am in favor of any event that gives me an excuse to drink champagne during daylight hours. What I don’t love is getting up early to cook, so I like to look for things I can make ahead of time. Wow, I sound really decadent and lazy. I’m really not. Promise.
A strata is a basically a savory bread pudding. It’s eggy, and custardy, and cheesy, and delicious. It’s the perfect make-ahead brunch dish. You can assemble it the night before and bake it while your friends are having their first glass of bubbly. Another nice feature of a strata is that you can customize it to meet the needs of your guests. As long as you cook it first, you can add pretty much any meat (crumbled Italian sausage is awesome in this) or veggie to suit everyone’s taste. Serves 8
