Walking on egg shells first thing in the morning is so, well, not a good start to the day. That's why making breakfast the night before (and cleaning it up) is a brilliant plan. Breakfast Strata changes easily when you switch to brown-and-serve sausage links, diced cooked ham or diced cooked bacon. Use Swiss or Monterey Jack if you're not a cheddar fan, and bread variations from herbed breads to sourdough. —Debbie Johnson, Centertown, Missouri

"Disgusting mess. It is a waste of good ingredients! 2 cups milk to 6 eggs, really?"

"1 1/2 cups of cubed ham can be used instead of sausage. I also used a Cheddar & Green Chile bread I found at the local grocery store. Prefer for company!"

"I have been making this for a long time and my family loves it. Cut down baking time by spooning it in muffins tins. Easier to use leftovers next day by warming in microwave for a quick breakfast."
