Sausage and Rosemary Strata

Have you gotten company coming and their spending the night and you want a relaxing breakfast in the morning? Then this is the recipe for you! This recipe was given to me by my daughter, Kim and highly recommended.


1 pound of breakfast sausage
8 large eggs
1 Cup water
6 Cups cubes (1/2 inch) Roasted Garlic Bread
1 T chopped fresh rosemary
1 Cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
Cooking Spray

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat 8 individual ramekins or an 8x8 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Saute the sausage until cooked through ,breaking it up and then set aside.

In a large bowl combine eggs and water and whisk until blended. Add the bread cubes, sausage, rosemary and cheese and mix together. Let the mix stand for 10 minutes.

Pour into the prepared dishes and set in the oven. Bake for 25 to 40 minutes or until the mixture is completely set. Remove from the oven and let cool 5 minutes and turn out onto a plate or serve family style.

I like to top the strata with chopped green onion. If your family doesn't want sausage you could use Ham. Of course you could always add more cheese on top...Enjoy!
