It’s Still February, Right?

I’m in denial.  It’s can’t actually be March.  There is still a ton of snow on the ground and it’s 20 degrees out.  Spring is never going to come.   So it must be February, and that means eggs.

We had a potluck breakfast at a work meeting this week and it seemed to be the perfect time to try out a strata and fulfill one of my February goals.  I could get it ready ahead of time and bake it during the meeting.  Super.

13 Steps to Making Strata, why thank you wikiHow, that is exactly what I needed.

1. Bread:  cheap white bread.  I let it sit out to get a little more stale.

2. Cheese:  cheddar.  Because I love it.

3. Veggies: mushrooms, green pepper and onions.  Sauteed (In honor of March.  I am getting much better.  High heat people.)

4. Meat: ham.  I love ham.

5. Custard:  6 eggs, 1 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of half and half, salt and pepper.  I used the same basic idea as the quiche mixture.

I got everything ready the night before and let it sit and soak overnight.  Brought it to room temperature in the backseat of my car as I drove to work and then popped it in the oven.  350 degrees for about 45 minutes.

Strata success.  It was delicious and I received a lot of positive feedback.  One of my co-workers, Jo, asked for the recipe.  I told her there was no recipe and happily directed her to wikiHow.  She was not amused by my smug attitude.  Sorry, Jo!  Hopefully this post helps.
