Triple Cheese & Onion Strata

Triple Cheese And Onion Strata (10)

Earlier this week I celebrated my birthday, the last of my twenties.  Despite the fact that I love presents and cake, I’m not crazy about my birthday and prefer to keep it very low-key and avoid being the centre of attention.  But of course, it is a day of treats, and I always start as I mean to go on with a wonderful breakfast.  This one is perfect, because all the preperation can be done the night before so all you have to do in the morning is pop it in the oven.  It’s also perfect because it’s a cheesy, stodgy, savoury bread and butter pudding, and possibly tastes even better as leftovers.  Nom nom!
