Strata is the ultimate breakfast food. Combining bacon, eggs, bread and cheese, these savoury bread puddings will have everyone coming back for more.

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.

Tip: Instead of using a muffin pan, bake in a 9 x 13-inch (22 x 33cm) baking dish for 40-50 minutes or until golden and egg is set.

Estimated cost: $1.62 per serving.

Directions for: Caramelized Onion & Bacon Strata Cups


8 strips Great Value Naturally Smoked Bacon

1 sweet onion, peeled and diced

1 sweet red pepper, peeled and diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

6 cups day-old crusty whole wheat bread, cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) dice

6 Great Value Large Eggs

½ cup 5% light cream

½ cup Great Value 3-Cheese Blend Shredded Cheese

3 green onions, thinly sliced

½ 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.
