This is very delicious and so quick and easy to put together. Ham is very tasty and you avoid having to brown sausage instead. Love skipping a step! I added extra cheese and extra ham to ours. Read More

Made this on Christmas Eve and baked in the morning. The only thing I'd change is using less bread next time. I used 3 large firm steak rolls and it was too much. Read More

This is a very good recipe! I did double the egg as 12 slices was too much bread but it turned out great! Read More

This is a very tasty and easy recipe. Make it the night before and pop it in the oven the next morning. I made this for a brunch and everyone loved it there were no extras! Even kids will love this one because there is no onion or "yucky" stuff. Read More
