February Haul + Breakfast Bagel Strata Recipe

The very last item I picked up from H&M that broke the buy and return cycle was a $2 striped tee that I thought would be a nice basic to have - I can't wait until the day I can have a bigger closet so I can actually see all the pieces I own - I might end up finding a few more basic stripes tees but when I picked it up, I didn't think I had one. :)


I was browsing Insta Stories and came across some cute Target finds so made a large purchase at 3AM when I was up from baby B:

Left: Denim Trucker Jacket in XS Light Acid Wash. Right: Button-Front Quilted Jacket in XS Blue.

Left to right: Fleece Sweatshirt in XS Gold, Who What Wear Polka Dot Crewneck Balloon Sleeve Sweater in XS Brown, Who What Wear Balloon Long Sleeve Top in XS Off White & Who What Wear High-Rise Paperbag Pants in XS

Here's a great recipe for a breakfast strata that can be made in advance and then popped in the oven the morning of:

BREAKFAST BAGEL STRATA
from Parents magazine April 2017
Active Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours 20 minutes to overnight (includes chilling time)
Ingredients:
6 4-oz. everything bagels, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (16 cups)
4 tablespoons unsaled butter, melted, plus more for greasing
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
8 slices thick-cut bacon, crisp-cooked and coarsely crumbled
12 eggs
2-3/4 cups whole milk
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss the bagel cubes with the melted butter and spread on 2 large baking sheets. Bake 10-15 minutes or until dried and toasted, rotating pans once halfway through baking.
2. Coat a 3-quart baking dish with butter. Cover the dish's bottom with a third of the bagel cubes. Sprinkle on a third of each of the cheese and bacon. Repeat layers, twice.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, garlic, salt, and pepper. Pour the mixture over the casserole, making sure to moisten all the bagel cubes. Use a sheet of plastic wrap to gently press the cubes into the egg mixture and cover the casserole. Chill at least 2 hours or up to overnight.
4. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove the strata from the refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Bake uncovered until the strata is set in the center (160 degrees), about 50 minutes, covering with the foil during the last 20 minutes, if needed to prevent overbrowning.
