Description

Skip the cold cereal and try this simple easy Bacon Cheddar 30 Minute Skillet Strata for breakfast instead! It gives you a hearty, fast egg breakfast that is made with fresh ingredients and packed with protein.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 slices Smithfield® Bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 onion, minced
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 and 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper
  • 5 slices hearty sandwich bread, cut into 1/2 inch cubes (leave the crust on)

Instructions

  1. Move an oven rack to middle position and set the oven to 425 degrees F. Place the chopped bacon in a 10-inch cast iron skillet (or other oven-safe nonstick skillet) over medium-high heat. Cook the bacon until the fat melts off and covers the bottom of the pan. Add the onion and stir to combine. Cook until the bacon is crispy and onion is soft and transulcent, about 5-7 minutes more.
  2. While the bacon and onion cook, beat together the eggs, milk, cheese and a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside. 
  3. Add the cubed bread to the skillet and gently stir together with the bacon and onion. Toast bread in the skillet for about 3-4 minutes, stirring once halfway through. Remove from heat.
  4. Pour the egg mixture over the bread cubes and stir. Gently press on the top of the bread to ensure it soaks up the egg mixture. Place the skillet in the heated oven and bake for about 12 minutes, or until the strata is puffed up, especially in the center, and the edges have slightly pulled away from the skillet. Remove from the oven, slice and serve.
