Cinnamon Raisin Strata

I don't sit still well. I never have. If I don't have a project or something to do, I get bored. Very, very bored. I also fidget all the time. I am one of those people that is always tapping their foot or fingers. It drives my husband nuts. He loves to take naps in the middle of the day, but I just can't do it. The moment I try to lay down I think of something that needs to be done. At any given time I have at least 3 projects that I am working on. Today I decided that I needed to make new covers for the pillows in our living room. This weekend I started re-upholstering our chairs. Last week I painted the bookcase. My brain has the habit of always seeing what needs to be updated or fixed. There are many days that I wish that I was more like my husband. It would be nice if I could sit down and relax occasionally. Cooking is one of the many ways that I distract myself. Last week I tried a new recipe for Cinnamon Raisin Strata from the Eggbeaters website.

This recipe has 8 ingredients. It takes 9 1/2 hours of total time (including fridge time), 10 minutes of which is active and makes 9 servings. I did make a few changes to the original recipe. First, I made my own cinnamon raisin bread from scratch. Homemade bread is always better than store bought. I allowed the bread to sit in the egg mixture overnight and then cooked it for a little over an hour. I like to have the outside of my strata to turn slightly crispy and brown and cooking it for a little longer than the recipe suggested allowed for this to happen.

I like that this recipe is lower in fat. Per serving it has 9 grams of fat and 13 grams of protein, making it a nice breakfast option. My youngest was a big fan of this recipe. However, I would suggest adding vanilla and more maple syrup, especially if you like your bread dishes sweet.

For the recipe go to Cinnamon Raisin Strata.

    1. My oldest is a big cinnamon raisin fan too. When I make cinnamon raisin bread he eats almost an entire loaf :)

  3. I like it a little crispy on the outside too. This looks good, and probably makes everything smell yummy too while it's baking.

  4. This sounds delicious! I love cinnamon and raisins together. I am actually more like your husband I suppose, because I love afternoon naps! I definitely like my leisure time :)

  5. I'm the same way, I like to be busy, busy, busy. Sitting around idly drives me nuts pretty quickly. This looks so delicious. My kids loooove French toast so this would probably be a hit at my house.

  6. I really want to eat that but I don't know if I can wait 9 1/2 hours. :) I'm just like you I can't sit still for too long so waiting for that delicious cinnamon raisin strata would drive me crazy. Would have to go shopping and come back.

  8. Awe I miss miss Ritter Park. I lived in Huntington and then moved across the River to Chesapeake and now back home in southeast WV. Loved seeing pictures of the park. Stumbled onto your blog from another blog =) Thought I would say hi to a fellow West Virginian.
