Here’s a great and different recipe that can be whipped up and served to a crowd for a family brunch or a potluck. It was a big hit at my breakfast block party:
Mexican Egg Strata:
12 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk, whole or skim (cream if you want it really rich :-))
6 corn tortillas cut into triangles
1 cup chopped sauteed peppers-I used Anaheim peppers
2 cups grated or small cubed cheese-I used pepper Jack and Muenster
1 tsp salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat eggs and milk and add salt and pepper.
In an 9″X13″ casserole dish, pour in egg mixture and stir in the peppers, corn tortillas and cheese.
Bake for 30-40 minutes until knife comes out clean in the center. Serve hot.
