You call it brunch. I call it dinner, too.
After all, when you have a dish this cheesy wonderful, why relegate it to the one meal of the day when we’re barely awake without coffee?
This magnificent strata is from “Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast” (Clarkson Potter) by the kitchens of Martha Stewart Living.
Take English muffin halves, layer them with slices of Canadian bacon, then soak the whole thing is a creamy, rich custard base full of sharp cheddar, Parmesan, a dab of Dijon mustard and a splash of Tabasco.
Then, bake in the oven until it’s all crispy, golden on top.
Sure, you can serve it in the morning with a cup of fresh berries or grapefruit half. Or do what I did — enjoy a gooey wedge for dinner with roasted spring asparagus spears and a simple green salad.
