I was first introduced to strata by my girlfriend, whose Mom makes a large one for breakfast every Christmas morning. Being that I’m swamped with work, I really didn’t have time to think up some elaborate Christmas themed recipe, instead opting for a delicious dish that could be easily and quickly made for either a group breakfast, or even as an appetizer! So here you go, Mini Breakfast Strata! It is super delicious and perfect for serving breakfast to a group!

Ingredients:

200 grams frozen puff pastry (thawed)
1½ cups of diced ham
½ cup packed diced spinach
½ cup diced mushrooms
½ cup diced red pepper
½ cup diced green onion
2 cups shredded cheese
5 eggs
Salt & pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Once you have thawed your puff pastry, on a floured surface, flatten the dough with a floured rolling pin until quite thin, and covers about a 12×12 inch area.
  3. Using a circle cutter, or mouth of a cup, cut circles out of the puff pastry large enough to fill the bottom of a muffin tin.
  4. Place puff pastry in the bottom of each muffin cup. You should be able to fill 12-15 cups.
  5. Whisk your eggs in a bowl, add salt & pepper.
  6. Now begin layering your ingredients on top of the puff pastry. I layered ham, spinach, mushroom, red pepper, green onion, then poured in 2-3 Tablespoons of egg, and topped with a generous amount of shredded cheese.
  7. Bake in the oven at 400°F for about 20-25 minutes until it has puffed and cheese becomes golden brown on top.
  8. Remove the mini strata with a spoon and serve!
