Foodie Corner – 2018 – Post #6 – Mix ‘N Match Stratas

What old recipe do you pull out each fall?

My two cents, but please share yours:

I always pull out the recipe for “Mix ‘N Match Stratas.”

Step 1:  In a single-serving, microwave-safe bowl, layer up (thin layers) as follows.

  1. Top layer = Cheese
  2. Green stuff
  3. Precooked protein
  4. Starch
  5. Spice dusting
  6. Cheese
  7. Green stuff
  8. Precooked protein
  9. Spice dusting
  10. Cheese
  11. Bottom layer = Starch

Step 2:  Nuke in the microwave until the cheese is hot and gooey. As always, play with your food. Enjoy.

Italian example:

  • Cheese = mozzarella
  • Green stuff = fresh basil leaves + thin-sliced Roma tomatoes
  • Precooked protein = Italian deli meats or prosciutto or mashed cannelloni beans (V)
  • Starch = precooked lasagna noodles or thawed wonton wrappers
  • Spice dusting = onion powder + garlic powder + dried basil

French example:

  • Cheese = Swiss cheese
  • Green stuff = lettuce or spinach
  • Precooked protein = bacon or ham or caramelized diced onions (V)
  • Starch = precooked puff pastry squares (3″ x 3″ toppers)
  • Spice dusting = parsley + tarragon

Tex-Mex example:

  • Cheese = cheddar
  • Green stuff = fresh cilantro leaves (layer like lettuce) + sliced jalapeno (optional for spice)
  • Precooked protein = fajita meat or deli turkey or deli chicken or mashed black beans (V)
  • Starch = corn tortilla (about 5″ round)
  • Spice dusting = onion powder + garlic powder + cumin + turmeric
