Strata for dinner?

Featured Recipe: Goat Cheese and Red Pepper Strata
An Egg Strata is perfect for weekend guests or for an entertaining brunch. But I have all but left them out of weeknight dinner possibilities. And it’s been a terrible oversight. Eggs for dinner are a delicious protein option. While preparing a strata ahead and storing in the refrigerator until ready to bake the next day is an obvious benefit, do-ahead work is not necessary to the final delicious egg casserole.
Today’s recipe is smaller casserole than a traditional strata, feeding four generously instead of the 8 to 10 my other recipes do. The leftovers, if you are feeding less than four, are delicious re-warmed with a small salad of greens or fruit. But it’s not so much that you feel like you are eating remains for weeks on end.
The rich flavors of red pepper and goat cheese are perfect any time of day; so don’t delay another moment to enjoy this wonderfully simple and elegant main dish whether it is morning, noon or night.

What you're saying..
Oh my goodness! How did I miss Kitchen Scoop until today? Have had Desperation Dinners for years -- we spend 6 weeks in Florida every winter and it is the only cookbook I take with me. Brunswick Stew is fabulous and tastes like it cooked for hours! Flake chicken is a favorite and I'm saving the black bean soup recipe forever!
Growing up in eastern NC, I know all about shelling butter beans and field peas and aren't they good in the winter?! Keep the good stuff going and I'll keep reading!
