Strawberry Breakfast Bake

We love to have a nice brunch or a really late breakfast here at the cottage, especially on weekends. If the weather is nice we like to have our brunch or breakfast out on the screen porch. We have enjoyed some beautiful strawberries from the strawberry patch this year and I thought these would sure make a great brunch dish and so they have. This is a fantastic recipe that we will enjoy over and over.
