Indulge in the savory delight of Bacon & Cheese Breakfast Strata, a hearty and satisfying dish perfect for starting your day with a burst of flavor.


  • 250g/8.8oz Streaky Bacon, diced
  • 1 Small Onion, finely diced
  • 6 Large Eggs
  • 1 1/2 Cups Whole Milk
  • 7 Cups Plain Bread (use baguettes not flat bread), cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 Tsp Season All Seasoning
  • 1 Tsp Dijon Mustard
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 2 Cups Shredded Monterrey Jack or Cheddar cheese


  1. Cook the onions until softened, remove from pan and drain on a paper towel. Add the bacon and cook until lightly browned and crispy. Remove from pan and drain on the same paper towel with the onions (reserve 2 tablespoons for topping).
  2. Whisk the eggs, milk, season all, mustard, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add the bread, 1 1/2 cups cheese, onions, and bacon to the egg mixture. Mix well. Cover and set aside in the fridge for at least 30 minutes (until all the egg is soaked into the bread).
  3. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Generously butter grease a 20cm/8-inch springform cake tin.
  4. Pour the bread mixture into the cake tin and softly pat down. Scatter with reserved bacon and remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Cover loosely with foil.
  5. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, remove foil and bake a further 25-30 minutes until golden on top.
  6. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before removing the springform. Garnish with parsley and cut into slices to serve. Enjoy!
