This was simple and quick to assemble. However, it didn't appeal to me (and I'm an egg and ham lover). The flavor was bland and the texture confusing. I really wanted to like this, but I'll make a frittata next time.

I was a big fan of how simple this recipe was to assemble. Then I tasted it. It was a disappointment. I put one less slice of bread and a few more eggs than the recipe called for, and it still tasted mostly of bread. It was bland and my guests left half the pan untouched. This was a fail in my opinion.

A nice basic recipe that you can change to suit your tastes. Use country ham instead of the milder ham implied in this recipe. Or half a pound (or more) cooked and crumbled bacon or country sausage. Vary the cheese. I like to use croutons, seasoned or plain, because it sets up a bit better. And I generally sprinkle with smoke paprika. Make the night before and refrigerate or in the morn, but let it sit at least an hour before baking. However you do it, a hearty breakfast.
