Southwestern Sausage and Biscuit Strata

Remember my little baking adventure? The one where I made Jalapeno, cheddar, chive biscuits while following along with Joy the Baker Cookbook challenge? My floured-up kitchen mess and the time it took to restore it back to it’s pristine condition is quite clear in my memory.

Anyway, that recipe made quite a large batch, so the remainder of these muffins have been in the freezer. I decided to thaw them out and turn them into a cheesy, creamy, sausage-y southwestern style strata.

I’ve never made a strata before, so taking some cues from a couple of different recipes, I was quite pleased with the end result.  In other words…YUM.  Let’s take a look.

    I don’t believe I’ve ever eaten a strata but this sure makes me want to. I’d like to have our kitchen in pristine condition just once – we usually just return it to the normal condition :-)

    Love those stratas! Especially since they need to be in the fridge overnight…no work the next day. We have one every holiday morning. Super idea to use your leftover biscuits in one…never would have occurred to me, Lea Ann.

      I couldn’t believe how it transformed from flat to fluffy in the oven. I agree about the no work the next day. Sure was nice to pop it in the oven.

    You had me at 2 jalapenos. 😉 I have never eaten a strata, but it looks beautiful (that photo alone would make me order it) and sounds delicious! What a great idea for company breakfast.

      I had never eaten a strata before either, but seen recipes here and there. Then someone had brought one to the Easter Brunch that was made with English muffins. I knew I had to put those biscuits to work.

    I love stratas! They come in so handy for a Christmas or Easter breakfast/brunch when you have guests. What a delicious way to use those biscuits!

      I really needed to use up those biscuits and they made a perfect platform for all this cheesy goodness.
