Breakfast Tortilla Strata

I saw this recipe out in the blog hopping...but I changed the original recipe quite a bit so here's my version!

Breakfast Tortilla Strata
1 lb breakfast sausage
1 red pepper, chopped
4 eggs
1 cup milk
1 container greek yogurt(i think it was around 5.8 oz, but up to 8 oz is fine)
2 cups shredded cheese(I used 4 cheese italian blend)
10 corn tortillas, cut into strips
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brown and crumble sausage, drain.
Mix together eggs, milk, yogurt, salt and pepper, whisk to combine well.
Lay 1/3 of tortillas in a greased 9x11 baking dish. Layer in half the sausage and peppers. Top with 1/3 of the cheese. Repeat layers, ending with tortillas(save a bit of cheese for the top) Pour egg mixture over the top and sprinkle with cheese. Bake for about 30 mins until top is golden brown and eggs are cooked through.

**This was EXCELLENT! It would make a great potluck or brunch dish! Even my 4 yr old ate it! I loved the flavor the sausage lended to the dish and the pop of color and freshness from the peppers!
