Reviews for Ham 'n' Cheese Strata
"QUESTION.....can I freeze this uncooked? Can it be frozen after cooking? I need lots of freezable recipes"
"Turned out great! It's almost like a giant ham & cheese omelette."
"Fantastic but needs more onions and peppers for my taste."
"I get so angry when people rate a recipe they have changed, but I didn't have a green pepper. I did have some leftover asparagus, so I chopped it up and added it. FANTASTIC!"
"We loved this. I left the cornflakes off and it was still great. A keeper"
"Very easy & very tasty! I loved that I had all the ingredients on hand. Perfect for morning, noon, or night."
"Made this for Christmas morning. Everyone loved it!"
"This is a delicious recipe. Wonderful flavor. I made it the night before and it made a lovely Sunday morning breakfast for my family. I made it w/o onions and green peppers, simply because I don't like cutting onions =) and don't care for green peppers. Still tasted delicious."
