Martha Stewart's English Muffin & Ham Breakfast Strata


Stratas are breakfast casseroles that have some sort of bread in them…kind of like a savory bread pudding. They are super convenient for the hostess since you can let them sit overnight and bake them in the morning.

Step 1

Prepare 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside. In the dish, alternately arrange muffin halves and meat, overlapping slightly.

Sprinkle with cheddar and Parmesan cheeses. Set aside.

In a large bowl: whisk together eggs, egg whites, milk, sour cream and pepper until combined. Pour over muffin, ham and cheese layers. Cover entire dish tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours and up to overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Bake strata, uncovered, until puffed and set in the center, approximately 60-80 minutes. If strata begins to brown before puffing up, cover loosely with foil to prevent burning.

Let stand 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
