  1. I made this strata tonight for supper. We all liked it, but have a suggestion; The English muffins make a nicer casserole if cut up into pieces. We used onions instead of peppers, just a personal preference. I put it together in the morning, then baked for supper. I almost forget the salt and pepper, since the recipe didn't say when to add it. But, I added it to the egg mixture along with 1 cup of milk. It just didn't seem right not to put milk in a strata. The strata turned out creamy and tasty, maybe just a little on the dry side. Thanks for a good recipe.

    This looks fantastic and I will be trying it tomorrow morning for DH and I. But a quick question on this. How does it taste if warmed up? Trying to come up with breakfast at work ideas that taste okay after being warmed up in the microwave.

    What a disappointment! Big time! I have made many breakfast casseroles and I have never been more sorry I didn't listen to my instincts and cooking experience. I'm 67 years old. My peers consider me a very good cook. Well, My Bad! Loved the English muffins vs traditional Pillsbury Biscuits or bread. However: For the volume of muffins in this recipe/size of casserole, I'm suggesting adding some milk, more eggs (4-6 depending on size of eggs) and 3 cups cheese. If you like spice, add some jalape├▒o peppers or chili peppers. Don't be afraid to use plenty of pepper and salt.
