Biscuit, Sausage & Egg Strata
Full house? You'll need a tasty, hearty breakfast to serve hungry guests and this strata fits the bill beautifully. Prepare it before bed and bake when you wake up.
Tip: Why refrigerate? Because a great strata is dense. To get that great texture, the eggs, heavy cream, and milk need time to saturate the bread. The flavor of the onion and sage will also develop overnight, yielding a more flavorful dish.
- 1 dozen eggs
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1-1/2 cups milk
- 1 tsp salt

Beat the eggs in a deep-sided 11" x 7" oven-safe casserole dish. Beat in the heavy cream, milk, salt, pepper and sage. Fold in the onions, biscuits, sausage, and 2 cups cheddar cheese.
Refrigerate for at least 6 hours, or overnight. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Top the strata with the remaining cheese and bake for 1-1/2 hours.
