Easter Brunch Egg Strata

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.
