Easter Brunch Lasagna

Ham, broccoli and hard-cooked eggs are terrific together in this unique brunch lasagna. I came up with the recipe for a family gathering. Muffins and fresh fruit are all I add to nicely round out the meal. -Sarah Larson, La Farge, Wisconsin

    Anyone have a suggestion to make this festive for Christmas? I was thinking of adding diced pimentos, wondered if that would look nice with the broccoli?

    I make this again and again and again! Such a crowd pleaser. Can't say enough good things about it. If you have never tried it, make sure that you do.

    I have made this MANY times. It is so good and always a crowd pleaser at playdates and brunches.

    Any one who's made this do you think you could make in advance and bake another day?

    Don't wait for Easter to try this one! I didn't have a full 3 cups of cheddar on hand, but since it called for hot pepper sauce, I used sharp cheddar for the 1st layer and finished it off with a mexi-blend shred. It was really good! Worth the effort to prepare... it made a nice Sunday brunch. For best results, make sure the ham, broccoli, and especially the eggs are finely chopped.

    My husband doesn't usually take seconds, but he did on this meal! Loved it!
