12 - eggs
2 cups - buttermilk
1½ cups - Sunterra Farms bacon, cooked and chopped
2 cups - Black Forest ham, chopped
½ cup - yellow onion, diced
½ cup - green pepper, diced
2 cups - shredded cheddar cheese
10 cups - day old brioche bread cubes
¼ cup - green onion, chopped
Salt and cracked black pepper to taste
Grease a 9x13 inch oven safe casserole dish and set aside.
Whisk 6 eggs and buttermilk together in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
Combine the bacon, ham, onion, pepper and cheese in a bowl. Spread 1/3 of the bread cubes in the bottom of the casserole dish, then spread 1/3 of the meat filling on top. Repeat this process two more times. Pour the egg and buttermilk mixture over the top and level with a spoon or spatula. Cover the strata and refrigerate at least two hours or overnight.
Remove the strata from the fridge and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350F for 45-55 minutes until the eggs start to set. Remove the aluminum foil and bake until eggs are fully set. Remove from oven and cut into 6 portions.
Poach the remaining 6 eggs and place one on top of each strata portion. Garnish with green onion.
