READY IN: 1hr 40mins

Posting this for ZWT 2006 (Canadian Region) this is delicious. Is it an omelet? Is it a bread pudding? Who cares?! It is cheesy with a wonderful ham flavor and such a good comfort food not to mention easy.

I didn't toast the English muffins and this still came out great. I also divided the strata between two 9-inch pie pans and froze one. The one pan served the 3 of us with leftovers. The smaller pan reduced the baking time to about 45 minutes. This is a keeper.
