Not a tower in London or a layer of rock and soil but an Italian recipe for breakfast! This Strata Recipe is one more that can be changed up, modified, ingredients moved and changed around and one more recipe that I love preparing for my guests!
Whatever you have growing in your garden this summer can be added to the Strata making it even better. Fresh tomatoes, zucchini, Thai Basil...you name it and it can be added to this recipe. Until then...using fresh eggs and veggies from your local Farmer's Market helps support our local growers, keeps your breakfast organic and fresh and makes for very good conversation around your breakfast table!
Enjoy this recipe and enjoy adding your own "special" ingredients!
MY PERSONAL STRATA!
Cube 2 slices of any kind of bread and lay in a single or double serving baking dish coated with butter or cooking spray.
Whip 3 eggs together with some basil, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper and a dash of milk and pour over the cubed bread.
Sprinkle with chopped onion, bacon pieces, Jack Cheese and chopped tomato.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 to 25 minutes or until egg is set.
I used sour dough bread although any type of break works well. And...I had some homemade pesto that I used instead of the basil and topped it with a little Feta cheese as well. It's a fun and easy recipe to play with and serves two perfectly if served with a little fruit, coffee and juice.
Enjoy at one of your Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild membership inns this season!
