We would like to share with all of you a favorite recipe from the Shafer Baillie Mansion
Brenda’s Egg Strata
Shafer Baillie Mansion
3-4 Cups shredded bread – You can use any type of breads. I like a combination of Dave’s Killer 21-grain bread along with croissants as they are very buttery and make for a wonderful texture and flavor.
8 Eggs, beaten
3 Cups milk
3 Cups grated cheese – I prefer a combination of white and yellow chesses, such as Flagship Cheddar and Swiss. A Mexican blend makes a nice option. You can also sprinkle cooked sausage on top with the cheese.
Spices – In addition to salt and pepper, I use a combination of fresh rosemary and other dried spices that I have on hand. Rosemary seems to be the favorite.

Spread bread pieces in layer 1-2” deep
Combine eggs, milk and spices and pour over the bread layer.
Top with grated cheese.
