Reviews for Chili & Cheese Ham Strata
"Yummy. Smells delicious. Make again."
"I would like to know how you curl and cooked the bacon Oh the Strata Recipe is great easy and good"
"This was really good, and easy to make. It's nice that it can be made the night before, so quick to fix in the morning. I used a can of chopped Jalapenos instead of chopped green chiies and it turned out great. Be careful as it is easy to over cook this one."
