I served this for a family brunch, and everyone asked for the recipe! I used less than the 2 cups of half and half because I didn't have enough, and it still came out fine. I used the jalapeno, green chilies, and tabasco (about 10 drops), and it still could have used more of a kick. So they weren't very spicy, but very delicious! And easy because you make them up the night before.
Easy and yummy. This is definitely a keeper and a do again. Next time I am gonna try and freeze a poriton after baking and see how well it does after thawing a nd reheating.
YUM! I used sausage instead of ground ham, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for a great breakfast treat.
