Once a week I like to mix things up and make fun theme dinners like “seafood”, “Mexican”, "eat only with a spoon", or “breakfast for dinner” night. Breakfast has come to be one of my kids absolute favorite meals they look forward to after a long day of school and after school activities. A few recipes they love most those nights are Pumpkin Waffles, Crispy Fried Eggs, French Toast on a Stick and Crazy Healthy Smoothies.
I try really hard at night to make sure the kids have a balanced meal with a protein, vegetable and carbohydrate on their plates. This can be challenging when you’re serving breakfast for dinner as the first meal of the day is generally more focused on fruits, carbs and protein. The kids love this strata made with lots of tasty sausage, so I worked up this Veggie Dinner Strata to serve on our breakfast for dinner nights.
It’s a really economical dish yet it feels kind of fancy. The last time I made it I served it on fancy china to make it feel even more special alongside Fruit on the Bottom Tapioca for dessert.
Since the dish makes eight plus servings it’s perfect for a crowd as well or even for breakfast leftovers another day.
On this meatless Monday, make an easy dish that’s relatively light on your budget and your busy schedule by making this wholesome Veggie Dinner Strata!
