Our family is growing up every day, and holiday cooking is tricky, with all the adult schedules to navigate. Some of us work in retail, and holidays mean longer work days, rather than time off. Others are farmers, whose work continues, regardless of the day of the year. So we have found, over the years, that hosting holiday breakfast not only works best with all the schedules, but is also a welcome break from a busy season.

Click on the photograph, below, for our family recipe for Spicy Sausage Strata – a favorite breakfast for the busy holiday season. Serve with coffee or tea and a bowl of fruit for breakfast, or offer homemade cranberry relish and mulled cider for a holiday brunch.
