I brought my first attempt at a strata and my standby brunch cake, making both the day before knowing I wouldn’t be able (or want) to function the morning after New Years Eve.
I deviated from the strata recipe (which makes me a textbook epicurious user) by using 2% milk instead of whole, a nice habenero cheese I found instead of pepper jack and didn’t bother cutting the crusts off the bread.
It was absolutely delicious; spicy, substantial, cheesy. Basically it was everything you want you’ve had way too much to drink. I’ll definitely make it again. I think it would be great with gallo pinto and maybe some bloody marys.
Any other good recipes worth trying during the Year of the Strata?
