Bobby Flay did a Strata on his brunch show today and it looked like a cook that could easily be adapted to the egg. Since the mini only egg I will taking to the Plano Fest, the mini was chosen to do the cook.

Ingredients: Bacon that purchased at the meat market yesterday, cubed and cooked down slowly, eggs, heavy cream, stale bread toasted and cubed, roasted and smashed: tomatoes, Hatch peppers, grated oaxaca cheese and garlic. Drained all juices into a cup ....tasted soo good.

    Dumb question. You drained the juice... What did you do with it?

    So why is the hatch chilie always roasted? Forgive my ignorance, I am curious.

    Also, why roast it to save or freeze it?

    Maybe @griffin would have an answer

    Two reasons:  
    1) They have a very tough outer skin and roasting enables the skin to be easily peeled off; 
    2) When a pepper is picked green they can be very bitter because the sugars have not fully developed and roasting brings out the sugars and the complex flavors of the chile.  
    The Hatch pepper can range form very mild to very hot (although this years batch has not been very hot).

    Okay, I've looked over your ingredient list twice now, and I can't figure out what the "juice" came from.   :-/
     
    I've never made a strata, but it looks similar to an artichoke frittata that I make for breakfast often, bet that'd be great on the Egg too!

  • Botch I drained all the juices that were in the peppers and the tomatoes the yield was close to 1/3 of a cup and it really was tasty.
    I had never heard of a strata before today so I googled it.  It seems it is a cousin to the quiche, the frittata, the Spanish tortilla and the southern breakfast casserole. Thinking a chorizo strata would be great too.

    There's always some residual juice in my Hatch baggies (5-6 peppers per bag, out of the freezer) so I'll have to keep it and try a bloody mary with it!
