For F*ckssake Breakfast Bake

I am not a morning person.  I do not eagerly leap out of bed at the crack of dawn ready to dive into the promise of a new day.  I do not jump onto a Peleton, bicycle, or yoga mat with some stranger in my ear feverishly trying to convince me that “I GOT THIS!”  I prefer to ease into my day with a strong cup of coffee and a delicious morning meal.  That is the beauty of FFS Breakfast Bake- especially if you are entertaining.  It is simple enough to make the night before, and pop it in the oven the next morning.  This fabulous and easy strata is packed with flavor and will have you greeting the new day.   In fact, morning person or not, you might just find yourself saying…        “FFS,  I REALLY HAVE GOT THIS”.

    I was out of half and half, so I substituted whipping cream. It was a little sweeter than previous time- but really good. Think this recipe could handle different veggies, and different breakfast meats depending on what is in the fridge- I look forward to more experimenting.
