This month the Virtual Supper Club is bringing you brunch! My contribution is this delicious
Swiss Tomato Saysage Strata!
Swiss Tomato Sausage Strata
I don’t know about you, but weekends always mean brunch to me.  My weekdays are so hectic that I am lucky to get out the door with protien shake in hand or even a packed lunch at times.  I don’t remember it being so hectic when the kids were home, maybe it was, or maybe I was younger and had more energy back then!
Swiss Tomato Sausage Strata
The original recipe for this strata is for Bacon Cheddar and Tomato, however, I had no bacon (shocker!) but I had turkey sausage.  When I think cheese and tomato, the natural combination to me is swiss, not cheddar.  Hence, Turkey Sausage, Swiss Chees, and Tomato Strata was born.  This was delicious and since Grumpy and I don’t eat a whole casserole by ourselves, I halved the recipe.  Still, at that I took leftovers to work and shared with co-workers.  Loved this recipe and I hope you will too!

    I love weekend breakfasts like this! We can't manage much more than scrambled eggs on weekdays between all of us trying to get out of the house early!
