We are a skiing family. All of us are out on the mountain early every saturday and sunday the entire winter. Sometimes it can be a challenge to get everyone fed and out by 8:00am, because I go out as well. All that activity requires some serious morning fuel before we head out into the cold. I like to have many breakfast staples on hand to fix a warm and healthy meal to my skiers. Pancakes and oatmeal (recipe on blog) are always good choices, as are warm muffins straight out of the oven. Here is a recipe that I’m sure you’ve heard of and everyone has a version, some call it an egg-bake, some a strata. I like to serve this because it can be assembled the night before and just slid into a pre-heated oven in the morning. Very stick-to-ribs!
About 8 slices of day old bread
1 8 oz pkgs grated cheddar cheese
2 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup chopped onion
4 cooked breakfast sausages – cut up*
salt and pepper to taste
Cut the bread into large cubes. Set aside. In a large bowl combine the eggs and milk and beat well, add all the remaining ingredients. Stir in the bread. Pour into a greased 9-inch square baking pan. Cover and let stand several hours in refrigerator or overnight. Bake at 325F for 1 hour or until a knife inserted comes out clean.
