Healthy Eats: Mini Stratas

By Trish Coffman

Strata is a layered production of bread, eggs, cheese and add-ins like sausage or salmon, plus herbs. These minis are meant to be taken on the road: Packable bites of protein you can customize to your appetite’s every whim, perfect for pre- or post-training noshing.

You will need:

  • A muffin tin with 12 cups, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 to 6 slices of whole grain bread, torn into strips
  • 12 large eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 tbsp milk

Optional: small chunks or slices of ham, bacon, sausage or smoked salmon, about ½ inch in width; grated or crumbled cheese; chopped herbs
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Break eggs into a large bowl, beat with a whisk or fork and season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Divide bread strips evenly among muffin cups. If adding ham or other protein, place on top of bread strips. Top with scant 1/3 C beaten eggs, filling cups to almost full. Sprinkle tops with cheese and herbs if using. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
