Win the brunch party by making a strata
To the uninitiated, a strata is a baked egg dish that's kind of like a frittata and a quiche had a baby they were both a little disappointed with, but still loved out of obligation. Making one involves putting a bunch of chopped-up bread cubes and whatever else you like in a scramble in a casserole dish, then covering it in an egg/cream mixture and baking. People tend to be impressed when you serve it, despite it being composed of expired bread and whatever you found in your fridge that seemed compatible with breakfast tastes.
Carbo-load with an Italian burrito
Hollow the loaf out, stuff it with spaghetti and meatballs, and you’ll be ready for that tomorrow’s track meet in no time! “Eat pasta, run fasta,” my coach used to say at pre-meet banquets. But what he didn’t say was “stuffing your gullet full of pasta stuffed into a two-food baguette is going to have serious health consequences when you quit the team, start smoking, and refuse to exercise.” Maybe because it didn’t rhyme? So, um, thanks for nothing, Mr. Hackney. (Totally worth it.)
