Halloween is almost here, which means the holiday season is officially upon us. Seriously, where does the time go? In my head, it's still supposed to be summer.
Now that it's time to plan for the holidays, it means planning for holiday breakfast and brunch. Do people actually plan for the holidays, or do they just put whatever on the table? I'm more of a decide what you're going to make the week (or day) before kind of person. Unless it's Thanksgiving dinner, for which no planning is involved because it's the same glorious menu every year.
Whether you're hosting a festive brunch this year, or just trying to feed the family that might be staying with you for the holidays, you probably want something filling and delicious that will impress your guests. Or at least make them smile.
Well, look no further. I've got the perfect savory brunch dish for you! This overnight mushroom artichoke strata is full of flavor and filling enough to happily get your guests from brunch to holiday dinner. It's full of hearty veggies - caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, and Ocean Mist Farms artichoke hearts. Plus creamy eggs, parmesan, and thyme, all bound together by bread, because no breakfast is complete without carbs.
What's great about these breakfast strata (besides the amazing flavor!) is that you can assemble it the night before if you'd like. Then all you have to do in the morning is bake it, and you've got a holiday-worthy brunch that takes no pre-coffee work. That's a win for me!
To cook the artichokes, you have a couple of options. You can steam them on the stove if you'd like, but I like to roast them in the oven by wrapping them individually in foil and baking at 400°F until soft, about 40 minutes for large ones. If you're in a hurry, you can also cook them in the Instant Pot with a cup of water on the pressure setting for about 12-15 minutes.
However, you cook your delicious Ocean Mist Farms artichokes is up to you! Then mix them with all the yummy ingredients in this overnight mushroom artichoke breakfast strata, bake (or go to bed, then bake) and be prepared to woo your guests with the most delicious brunch dish of the season!
