Wow, we really didn't enjoy this as much as the other reviewers. It just tasted like soggy, mushy bread to us. I definitely would add more salt and spices, maybe some additional veggies or a stronger cheese. I do like the English muffin angle, though - very simple way to build a strata!
It was a great dish! I served it for Mothers day, it was easy to make and tasted wonderful. Instead of using english muffins I put in 1.5 Cups of Potatoes O'Brien and increased the cooking time an additional 10min.
Great recipe for brunch and I will add it to my recipe repertoire. I did make two changes: (i) because I was serving it with Warm Ham with Shallots and Vinegar (CL recipe), I replaced the lean ham with bacon; and (ii) used the 100 calorie high-fiber English muffins instead of regular English muffins.
This is our no-fail, go-to breakfast strata. It's great when hosting a brunch or have holiday guests staying overnight since we just throw it in the oven in the morning. It's light, yet has lots of flavor, and everyone asks for seconds (we always double it). I don't know how many times I've passed on the recipe....
