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.

My husband grew up in Michigan and his mother was originally from the hills of Kentucky. I first had Chocolate Gravy one winter when she was visiting. Growing up in the South, too, I was surprised that I had never had it nor even heard about it. Anyway it was rich and delicious and she served it over hot, flaky biscuits.
My husband told me that when he and his cousin were running cross country in high school, before each Saturday race, his mother would make them biscuits and chocolate gravy. Now thanks to Cheap. Fast. Good! I am preparing your version of biscuits and chocolate gravy. Except now instead of heading to a cross country race we will be headed to our son's swim meet. Thanks for helping me carry on a family tradition.
