Goat Cheese Asparagus Breakfast Strata

Goat Cheese Asparagus Breakfast Strata Recipe

With the 4th of July weekend coming up, I thought about what one of my recipes I could share with you to make your entertaining adventures a little easier. I love baking and cooking, but sometimes it’s nice to put the Chef’s knife and/or oven mitts away to enjoy spending time with your house guests. This is a wonderful recipe that allows you to do just that.

This recipe for Goat Cheese Asparagus Breakfast Strata is prepared the evening before, and thrown in the oven when you awake, allowing you to savor your morning coffee, and put your face on. It’s much better than slaving away in the kitchen to make sure all your guests are fed in a timely manner. This Strata is filled with loads of goat cheese and trimmed asparagus pieces.

It’s not your average breakfast bake. Also, the addition of a bed of English muffin pieces adds a wonderfully soft crust-like element to this breakfast dish. Your friends and family will think you’re a culinary magician, wondering how you were two places at once. Goat Cheese Asparagus Breakfast Strata Recipe I really love decorating the top of this strata with the optional asparagus rounds that I mention in the recipe. They really add a beautiful touch to the top of this breakfast bake. If you happen to have a mandolin slicer, try out the beautiful asparagus rounds. They really add to eye appeal of this dish, and remember, we all eat with our eyes first!

This is my go to dish when I have house guests. It's prepared the night before, and thrown in the oven first thing in the morning. I can enjoy coffee and friendly banter with everyone in the morning rather than slaving away in the kitchen. I get to visit with my guests and enjoy my morning coffee.
  • 5 English Muffins, Toasted and torn into pieces.
  • 8 oz. Goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1 bunch Asparagus
  • 1 Green, or Yellow Bell Pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 cup Grilled slice chicken *optional
  • 10 Large Eggs
  • 2¼ cups milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese.
  1. Grease a 9" by 13" baking dish
  2. Spread the English muffin pieces in the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  3. Sprinkle the goat cheese evenly across the English muffin pieces.
  4. Trim the asparagus, and cut into 1 inch pieces. (alternatively, reserve two stalks of asparagus, uncut, and slice into thin rounds on a mandolin slicer to sprinkle over the top of the strata. This enhances the presentation and makes for a nice decorative element to the dish.)
  5. Blanch the asparagus pieces for two minutes, and shock in an ice water bath.
  6. Spread the blanched asparagus over the English Muffin Pieces and Goat cheese.
  7. Spread the Bell Pepper strips or pieces over the asparagus.
  8. Spread the grilled chicken pieces across the bell pepper.
  9. Lightly whisk the eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and onion powder.
  10. Pour the whisked egg mixture into the baking dish over the other ingredients.
  11. Sprinkle the mozzarella cheese over the top of the strata, and if you sliced asparagus rounds sprinkle these over the mozzarella.
  12. Cover and Refrigerate overnight or up to 8 hours.
  13. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Bake the strata for 50 min to 1 hour, or until set.
  14. Let the Strata cool 5-10 min before cutting.
