Sausage Strata

This prep-ahead breakfast is a great savory start to winter mornings! Make the night before, tuck away in the refrigerator, then pop in the oven while you’re making the coffee! Short on time? Just let it rest on the counter for an hour before baking.

Your kit includes: 

  • Diced Bread
  • K&M Breakfast Sausage

  • Kale
  • Sage
  • Thyme
  • Minced Garlic
  • Heavy Cream
  • Shredded White Cheddar

Pantry items: 

  • Butter

1) Butter a large cast iron skillet or 9x13 inch baking dish.

2) In a sauté pan over medium-high heat, crumble all of the sausage into the pan and cook until browned. Remove from pan and set aside in a large bowl.

3) While the sausage is cooking, dice the onion into 1/2 inch pieces. Strip sage and thyme from stems and mince, about 2 Tbsp of each.

4) In the same pan you sautéed the sausage, melt 2 Tbsp butter over medium-high heat. Add onions, garlic and herbs and sauté until the onion is lightly translucent. Add the chopped kale and continue to cook until kale is softened. Season with salt and pepper then add mixture to the bowl with the sausage.

5) Place cubed bread in the bowl with the sausage and sautéed vegetables and all of the cheese. Mix together well and place in the baking dish.

6) Using the same bowl (fewer dishes!), whisk together the cream, 4 eggs, and season well with salt and pepper. Pour this mixture over the bread.

7) Cover dish and refrigerate overnight or let rest at room temperature for an hour before baking.

8) When ready to bake: Preheat oven to 375ºF. Uncover baking dish and place on the middle rack of the oven and bake for about 1 hour, or until strata is golden brown and your kitchen smells amazing!

9) Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Serve warm right out of the pan.

Happy Holidays, one and all!
