Meat Strata 

March 18, 2016

UPDATE: I revisited this one.  The ratios weren’t to my liking and trying to divvy the components equally into small dishes didn’t work very well.  So the newer recipe I revamped ingredients a bit and plopped it into a 8-inch square dish instead.  Downside is that it took quite a while to cook, but I think the amount of ingredients worked well.  Also time saving step of just adding the veggies raw.  They cooked enough while being baked in the strata itself.

ORIGINAL: A few years ago we went to the Volunteer Park Cafe after my crit and Jim got a meat strata.  It was an individual portion made in a muffin cup.  I hadn’t really noticed a strata before, but it looked pretty appetizing and was pretty good despite my non-love for things very eggy.  I didn’t have any bell peppers on hand, but ideally I would have added one so I included it in the recipe below.  You could really make these a variety of ways including vegetable loaded and meat ridden.

UPDATE

INGREDIENTS:

6 oz sliced sausage (qty 2) or diced ham
6 eggs – I used 4 equivalent liquid eggs (3/4 cup) plus 2 eggs
