This savory breakfast pudding looks a little like a pizza when it comes out of the oven. It can be prepared the night before through step 2 and baked the next morning.

Cook's Notes

Let the strata chill 2 hours, and it will be nice and moist. If you leave it overnight in the refrigerator, it will be even more custardy.

To test for doneness, pierce center of strata with a sharp knife; it should feel firm and the knife should come out clean.

The muffin halves and Canadian bacon are arranged upright in the baking dish for easier serving. When cutting, you'll be able to see the layers and make sure each portion contains a few pieces of bread and bacon.

      Can someone explain how to put the English muffins. I am not sure I understand this. You slice and then toast and then cut in half? Lie each half on bottom of dish face down and then put Canadian bacon on top. Is this correct???

        The muffin halves and Canadian bacon are arranged upright in the baking dish not laid out flat.

    I'm not an egg person, but this is DELICIOUS! My kids couldn't wait to try it because it smelled so good while cooking! This was an easy recipe and can be made in advance. I can't wait to make this again! Another wonderful recipe from Martha!

    I prepared this super-easy dish the night before and it turned out fabulous! It is easy to substitute different types of bread, and cheese. It looked just like the picture! I would like to add veggies - possibly spinach, or asparagus next time.

    I made this Christmas Eve to serve for breakfast Christmas morning. Unfortunately, it wasn't a hit with my family. It was very bland and the texture is odd. Something is definitely missing from this recipe. Although this dish was easy to make, I will not be making it again.
