Magick In The Kitchen: Jen's Kitchen Sink Strata
Magick in the kitchen....Ok i haven't gone grocery shopping in a week or so...creativity is your friend..
Jen's Kitchen Sink Strata
Basic Strata recipe:
1/2 cup liquid, such as milk, tomato juice, broth
1/4 tsp. dried thyme leaves OR herb of your choice
Salt and pepper
2 tsp. butter
Fillings of Choice.
Now most recipes use a bread or Pasta in the filling..
I have issues with with Flour..So I had left over Spaghetti Squash so I used that as a base. Placed in a Buttered baking dish.
Then I found a can of crab in the pantry. Some misc cheeses in the fridge with Fresh Spinach, onion, garlic and herbs. I chopped all this and tossed in with the Squash. Be creative here. The flavor is up to you!
Mixed Eggs, Liquid and Salt and Pepper in a dish and Pour over veggies.
Cover with Foil
Adjust oven rack to middle position. Bake in preheated 325-degree oven for 50 or so minutes.
Remove Foil & Turn on broiler and broil until strata is spotty brown and puffy (watch carefully), about 5 minutes longer. Let stand for 8 to 10 minutes, then serve immediately.
