Strata Cups for Breakfast and Brunch

Yes, my friends, we are back in the kitchen making one of my favorite meals of the day: breakfast (or brunch, if you enjoy sleeping in)!

I’m not sure what it is about breakfast foods, but I just love them. BRING ON the pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, bacon, eggs, etc.!

In this post, I wanted to introduce you to a new recipe, my Breakfast Strata Cups!

What Is Typically In Strata?

You might be wondering, what is strata anyway? Strata is basically an egg casserole made with bread. It’s typically a combination of bread, eggs, cream, meat, cheese, and vegetables.

ingredients for Breakfast Strata Cups

As you can imagine, the flavor combinations are almost endless. For my breakfast strata recipe below, I used sausage, cheddar cheese, red bell pepper, and green onion, but feel free to use what you like or what you have on hand.

Strata is typically made in a large 9×13 pan, but because I think individual portions feel so much more special, I baked mine in individual ramekins. (My ramekins were 8 ounces each.) Isn’t the presentation beautiful?

Shop Ramekins

I believe I found these particular ramekins at HomeGoods. While I tried to find a link for them online, I was unsuccessful. However, here are a few cute options worth of your mini strata!

Can These Strata Cups Be Frozen?

Yes! These strata cups freeze beautifully. Just make sure that your ramekins are freezer/microwave safe.
You can reheat the strata cups in the microwave at 30-second intervals until warmed through.

Have I convinced you to give this unique breakfast strata recipe a try? I sure hope so. Let’s whip them up!
