Breakfast foods are some of our favorite foods and our Sausage Strata is hard to beat! This super simple strata is so comforting, delicious and can feed between 8 and 10 people! Our strata is also a favorite because you can make it the night before and just pop it in the oven before you’re ready to serve it!
We make this recipe whenever we have overnight guests over, but especially when during the holidays. It’s one of the best Christmas morning breakfasts you could ask for!
What is a Strata?
A strata is a layered egg casserole, usually involving layers of bread with some sort of filling between the layers. It’s most popular as a brunch dish and is similar to a bread pudding, but more often made savory (like our recipe today!).
Leftovers can be frozen in individual portions, wrapped in foil and then stored in an airtight container for up to 2 months. When ready to serve, leftover portions can be unwrapped, placed onto a microwave safe plate, covered with a damp paper towel and heated for 3 to 5 minutes (depending on the strength of your microwave).
