Hi Rise’s Jalisco Strata


Hi Rise—an artisan bakery serving handcrafted breads, sandwiches, and salads—also dishes up strata. This savory breakfast casserole (envision a hearty bread pudding) is both a brilliant retooling of stale bread and a tasty way to start the day.

The downtown bakery serves four varieties of the dish, including the excellent Jalisco. Made with egg, bread, chorizo, Cotija cheese, jalapeño, tomato, and cilantro, the kicky combo is rustic and flavorful, and the perfect foil for a chilly fall morning.
