I had bowls with cheese, caramelized onions, bacon (for the meat lovers), cheese, and diced tomatoes. I also mixed up some of the potato that was removed earlier with some salt, pepper, and a bit of butter to add to the skins or just on the side. It was a great take on your standard potato skins.

Gluten Free Asparagus & Cheese Strata

For Christmas Day I decided to make this Strata for a little brunch after we finished with all the Christmas festivities. I woke up early that morning to make it and let it chill in the fridge until we were ready, but you could make it the night before and bake it in the morning.
