Bacon and Cheddar Strata

Strata, egg bake, savory bread pudding, overnight breakfast casserole it really is all the same thing. Are you intrigued? You should be! This is a breakfast casserole you prepare the night before and pop in the oven to work its magic in the morning.

It is the BEST way to cook breakfast/brunch for a crowd without working your tail off. Hey the cook wants to enjoy all the mimosas and Bloody Mary’s with the guests too. This dish allows you to do that!

Bacon and Cheddar Strata

I have made this dish countless times when I’ve hosted brunch parties over the last 10 years. In fact egg bake was the very first recipe I ever posted when I first dipped my toes into recipe development/blogging in 2007. Each year it is the most popular recipe on my site.

Day old crusty bread works the best for the strata and I find in the summertime, I have lots of day old (bread) buns on hand. Extra hamburger or hot dog buns are perfect here. Make it for yourself (it reheats well) or make it for a crowd, either way I hope you enjoy this classic recipe.


  1. I’ve just learned that I’m type 2 diabetic. Do you have a recipe for a bake or quiche that I can make for myself
