Bacon and Cheese Strata

The kids can do most of this by themselves with just supervision and some directions.


½ cup milk

½ cup cream

6 slices of bread

1 cup of grated cheese (I use mozzarella)

4 bacon rashors

8 eggs


Salt and Pepper

*Additional/alternative ingredients can include: mushrooms, tomato, spinach, other vegetables, etc.


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Grease tray/muffin tins (we use tray at home and muffin tins for school lunches)
  3. Crack eggs into bowl. Add milk, cream, salt and pepper. Whisk together.
  4. Cut shallots and slice bacon into strips. Add to egg mix.
  1. Tear bread into pieces.
  2. Add bread and cheese to mix. Soak the bread in the egg.
  3. Pour mix into tray/muffin tins and add a sprinkle of cheese over the top.
  1. Bake for approx. 30 minutes or until egg is cooked. *Every oven is different to please adjust accordingly.
  2. Sit strata for 5 minutes and then enjoy!!

    I’ve bookmarked this because with Mr C at Sea and me being on a restricted diet, my girls are doing a lot of the cooking and I’ve been looking for quick and easy recipes that they will all like. This is perfect.

    Thanks for linking up with Agent Mystery Case’s Worth Casing blog of the month. Winner announced soon and this month’s link up opens Wednesday.
