The idea for this began last year when I began baking frittatas in the morning using veggies from my garden. Namely, zucchini and cherry tomatoes. To zest it up, I threw in some bacon and feta! Now you’ve got divinity in a baking dish! You can essentially mix and match whatever ingredients you like. I would suggest 2 veggies, 1 meat, and 1 strongish cheese. When it came to adding bread, I wanted decadent flavor. Nothing quite fits the bill like a croissant, don’t you agree? The buttery goodness is like kryptonite to me! Furthermore, it doesn’t need to soak overnight like most stratas do! That is a big bonus for me since I never think about breakfast until the sun is rising.

The best piece of advice I can give you for stratas and frittatas alike is this: treat the egg like it’s the binding and not the star of the show! Too much egg and you lose the flavors you try to showcase. A majority of the meal should be the veggies and meats you include. Enjoy!
