Recipe for making Cheese and Bacon Breakfast Strata Cake
- 10 oz / 300g bacon, diced
- 6 eggs
- 1¼ cups milk (full or low fat)
- ¼ tsp salt (ordinary table salt) or ½ tsp sea salt flakes or kosher salt
- Black pepper
- 7 cups (lightly packed) baguette / French stick cut into 2 cm / 1 inch cubes (preferably slightly stale)
- 2 cups grated cheddar cheese (You can substitute with any other flavored melting cheese)
- Parsley, finely chopped (garnish — optional)
Step 1: Heat a large non-stick pan over high heat.
Add all but 2 tbsp of bacon (reserve for topping) and cooked until lightly browned. Remove from the frypan and drain on a paper towel.
Step 2: Whisk the eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a bowl.
Step 3: Dice the bread into smaller pieces using a cutting board, and then pack the pieces into a large zip lock bag.
Pour in the egg mixture, 1½ cups cheese and cooked bacon (reserve the uncooked bacon). Seal and massage the egg into the cubes. Put in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes (until the egg is soaked into the bread).
- Pre-heat the oven to 180℃/350F
- Spray a 21cm/8" springform cake tin. Pour the bread mixture into the cake tin, pat down to compress and scatter with the remaining uncooked bacon and the remaining ½ cup cheese. Cover loosely with foil or with a pan lid.
- Bake for 25 minutes, then remove the lid and bake for a further 10 minutes until bubbly and golden on top.
- Allow to rest for 5 minutes before removing the spring form and cutting into slices to serve. Garnish with parsley if using.
Note: If you would like to garnish it, you can slice cheese using a slicer and to it. That’s all!
