too eggy :(

don't get me wrong, i love me some eggs. but, like most good things, only in moderation.

tonight i tried my hand at making a strata for the first time (i accidentally bought an extra loaf of bread, thought i'd branch out and try something new). i used: 6 slices of bread, one big onion, a couple handfuls of spinach, 3 portobello caps, half a bag of fake meat crumbles, 2 cups of milk and 8 eggs (recipes i'd looked at prior to my experiment used 9-12, so i thought 8 would be ok). i seasoned it thoroughly (thyme, oregano, garlic, red pepper, s&p), covered it with real parmesan (not the flavorless sawdust kind), and when it came out, all i could taste was EGG.

do i add more things? use less eggs? if i do that, will it all fall apart? will it be worth it to avoid feeling like im just having scrambled eggs for dinner?
