Aside from being comforting and filling, stratas are really easy to make. Whisked eggs and milk are poured over bread and your favorite fillings, then everything’s left to soak overnight. In the morning, just pop it in the oven while the coffee’s brewing. Breakfast is served.
Game plan: The assembled strata needs to soak overnight before baking, so plan accordingly.
If you don’t have day-old bread on hand, toast the bread cubes in a 300°F oven until they are crisp and dry but not browned, about 15 minutes.
