Chorizo and Kale Strata

Strata is a savoury bread and butter pudding. A quick lunch or dinner dish when I want something more substantial than an omelette, but less fiddly than a frittata

  • 85 g Chorizo that's half of one of the rings from Aldi
  • 200 ml Milk
  • 7 Eggs
  • 50 g Stale bread cut into cubes (any type is fine)
  • 50 g Kale sliced thinly
  • 1 Small red onion sliced thinly


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C.
  2. Cut the chorizo into small pieces and fry over a medium heat until crispy (about 5 minutes). You don't need any oil, the chorizo will release it's own oil.
  3. Whilst the chorizo is frying, add 4 of the eggs to the milk and whisk together, then drop in the chunks of bread. Mix it in and leave to soak.
  4. Turn up the heat on the frying pan, add the kale and the onion to the chorizo and fry for a further 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add your eggy bread mixture to the pan and mix everything thoroughly. Leave on the heat for 2-3 minutes. Whilst it's cooking, make 3 wells in the mixture and break each of the remaining eggs into one.
  6. Pop the pan in the oven for 10 - 12 minutes. It'll go from not cooked to cooked really quickly so keep an eye on it. You want the whites of the eggs on top to be just set.
