David Kobos’ Breakfast Strata

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

Here’s a delicious breakfast strata, or casserole, to serve as a centerpiece for breakfast or brunch. It’s easy to assemble and I make it often for our family gatherings. This can be put together a day ahead and kept refrigerated until baking time.


4 Cups bread, cubed. Can be fresh or stale, white or whole grain.
1 Pound bulk pork sausage cooked and crumbled. Or use link sausages cooked and sliced ¼ inch thick.
2 Cups broccoli, cooked and chopped in 1 inch pieces
10 Large eggs
2 Cups whole milk
2 Teaspoons dry mustard
1 Teaspoon salt
1/4 Teaspoon ground pepper
1 1/2 Cups grated cheese—Sharp cheddar, Gouda, or Gruyere


Grease a 9 X 13 inch glass baking dish or other convenient casserole dish. I use an 11 X 7 X 3 inch ceramic dish. Beat the eggs, milk, mustard, salt and pepper together in a large bowl.

Spread the bread in bottom of the dish. Top with broccoli then the sausage. Sprinkle grated cheese on top. Pour the egg mixture over the top. Allow to sit for half an hour before baking.


Bake for about until puffed and the center is set.
