8 strips Great Value Naturally Smoked Bacon
1 Sweet onion peeled & diced
1 Sweet red pepper peeled & diced
3 Clove Garlic minced
6 cups Crusty whole wheat bread day-old crusty whole wheat bread, cut into 1” (2.5 cm) dice
6 Great Value Large Egg well beaten
0.5 cup 5% light cream
0.5 cup Great Value 3-Cheese Blend Shredded Cheese
3 Green Onions thinly sliced
0.5 tsp Great Value Iodized Sea Salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).  Spray 12-cup muffin pan thoroughly with non-stick canola oil spray.
  2. Cook bacon until crispy according to package directions.  Reserve 1-2 Tbsp (15-30 mL) fat.  Drain bacon on paper towel then roughly chop.  Set aside.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the reserved bacon fat over medium-high.  Add diced onion and red pepper. Sauté 10-15 minutes, stirring often, or until well caramelized. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute longer. Transfer to large mixing bowl to cool slightly.
  4. In small bowl, whisk together eggs and cream.  Add to caramelized onion mixture along with bacon and remaining ingredients; stir well to combine. Let stand for 5 minutes, stirring several times, or until egg and cream is absorbed.
  5. Divide mixture evenly between the 12 muffin cups. Bake for 20-24 minutes or until egg is set.  Carefully run a knife around each strata to loosen.  Remove them from the pan using the tip of a knife.  Serve warm.

Recipe notes

  • Yields 12 individual stratas (6 servings)
  • Use day-old or stale bread for this, fresh bread is too moist and won’t suck up all the egg mixture.
  • All ingredients can be assembled the day ahead, chilled, then baked fresh in the morning.  If baking from cold, increase bake time by 4-6 minutes.
  • Instead of using a muffin pan, bake in a 9 x 13” (22 x 33cm) baking dish for 40-50 minutes or until golden and egg is set.
