Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Strata
I followed the recipe with the exception of adding more bacon. It was tasty, but too dry -- I will use less bread next time, and will also try using milk instead of 1/2 and 1/2 to save a few calories. I'll also try other ingredients such as ham instead of the bacon, and maybe some diced green chiles. It's good enough to try again with some tweaking.

Cheesy Baked Eggs
I got this recipe from a friend a few years ago and have made some variation of this dozens of times since then. My recipe includes a teaspoon of baking powder, which makes it puff up nicely. As written this recipe is five star, but here are some other things you can do. If you want to speed up the baking process, put it in a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 minutes, then turn the heat down to 350 for another 20-25 minutes. I sometimes add spinach and mushrooms instead of diced chilies. I usually use just 8 oz. of reduced fat sharp cheddar to cut down on fat and calories, and I use eggbeaters instead of whole eggs. You can substitute olive oil for the butter, too. It keeps pretty well for a few days, but is best when it's fresh out of the oven.

Poppy Seed Bread III
Fabulous. The only thing I will do differently next time is double the poppy seeds. I used mini loaf pans, and the recipe made five generous loaves. (You could make six smaller loaves.) For the small pans it took about 45 - 50 minutes to bake. If you don't care much for almond flavor you might want to reduce the amount of almond extract, but for me it's perfect!
