This was pretty good. I did switch it up a little though. Right after I put the ham on I added sautéed mushrooms and onions only to half cuz my hubby doesn't like mushrooms. I had some cloverleaf rolls leftover from dinner last night that worked really well. I used only 5 eggs and used half milk and half heavy cream.I also added a little garlic salt and a sprinkle of mustard powder to the eggs. I cooked it ten extra minutes and put tomatoes on top when it was done then salt/peppered them as I don't like hot cooked tomatoes as much. I needed a recipe for an egg bake that didn't need to be refrigerated all night and this fit the bill. I will make again but I'll add a little more spices for more flavor. Read More

Yummy! I cut the bread in half (not much of a bread eater) and used brown sugar honey ham slices. Sprinkled some garlic powder over the cheese (used grated cheddar) and replaced the tomatoes with fried onion crumbles. soooooo good! Read More

Loved this easy breakfast recipe after I added the ham I added in sautéed mushrooms and onions and it was delicious. I didn't have any tomatoes on hand so I used a can (not a whole can) of smoked tomatoes and it was perfect! I only made one serving and used two eggs instead of one. I will definitely make this again.! Read More

6 26 15 ... http://allrecipes.com/recipe/235695/ham-and-cheese-egg-bake/ ... Eight ounces seemed like a lot of ham so I used less. 'Used less cheese, too & it was still a bit overcheesy for me. Kinda fluffy/creamy omelette-ish. A good beginner recipe for sure. The bread wasn't so obvious - more to absorb the egg mixture. Easily improved with add-ins. :) I added a bit of heavy cream to the eggs, too. Read More

I would definitely make this again but I would use more bread. I don't think I used enough. I also would've baked it a little longer. Great recipe. Read More
