This past weekend we drank so much Hofbrau Oktoberfest beer, by Sunday, I am almost getting sick writing the name out.

Of course we had a great time, but of course we had to pay. Sunday=hangover time. Luckily, my mother was ready with her annual Sunday post-Oktoberfest brunch. Every year, she treats us all to a brunch complete with food perfect for curing any hangover.
Her brunch buffet includes organic homemade tomato juice, egg frittata, fruit salad, bacon, sausage and most importantly two bread casseroles: french toast casserole and a strata casserole which made of large pieces of bread crumbs with egg, tomato, ham and cheese.

The bread in these two dishes is perfect for soaking up extra alcohol in your stomach. What's best about strata, beside it's delicious taste, is its ease to make. It only takes minutes to make and can be made up to two days ahead so you don't have to waste time waking up early the morning of your party. Check out the recipe and try it for yourself.
P.S. Sorry the pictures for this post are so crappy, but I was incredibly overhung when I was doing them and this is all I could produce.
