Ham ‘n’ Cheese Strata

Our daughter wouldn't mind if I made this Ham 'n' Cheese Strata every weekend! I do prepare it for each holiday, serving it alongside fresh cinnamon buns and a fruit salad. —Marilyn Kroeker, Steinbach, Manitoba

    This was ok if you like ham and cheese but I like recipes with more flavor.

    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

    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.
