Loved this! I did change it by using a whole pound of bacon, I used all milk instead of half&half (I also added some melted butter in with the milk), and I used canned mushrooms and a little more cheese than called for, but it was great! A big hit with the whole family, I will make this one again FOR SURE :)
We thought this was good and worth hanging onto, but definitely needed something to "kick it up" a notch, whether it be some chopped jalapeño peppers or maybe some jack cheese. All in all, we enjoyed it and I will make again. Also, I think I would add a bit more bacon, it wasn't very noticeable.
Yum, very good, I added green peppers and onions. Also used texas toast bread. Was a hit with my guy the breakfast King. Thanks for the post.
My friends just loved it. I used a pound of bacon and 1/2 onion and 1/2 of a red bell pepper. Also added black pepper and salt.
I made this on a sat. morning and after reading reviews first, I decided to use 1cp. extra sharp chedder(shredded) and 1cp. shredded chedder then I added 1/2tsp of paprika and some chopped jalapeno. This really set it off. My husband and our grown kids loved this. Even my 6 yr old grand daughter asked for more...showing not too spicey even for a little girl. Very easy and so very good.
I needed to feed a small army, so I doubled the recipe and added: 6 Roma tomates, seeded and chopped; 2 large red onions, chopped and fried in small amount of butter ; 1 green and 1 yellow Bell pepper, seeded and chopped and fried with the red onion. Throw it in with the mushrooms and it was off to the races. Excellent and easy. Had some left over ham and threw that in, too. This strata, fresh fruit and fruit juice and warm tortillas fed an army for CHEAP...
This recipe was very easy to follow and came out great. i cut the recipe in half but kept the cheese and bacon the same. i also added a chopped jalapeno and 1/4 chopped onion. Im a beginner cook and this came out great! thanks for the recipe
This is a great recipe for variations. I'vce done them all and they are always a hit. Even good reheated the next day.
