    I really liked the flavors of this. I must admit I forgot to put the top layer of bread, so it was more like an open faced sandwich. I had trouble getting the cream cheese mixed with the eggs and I was in a hurry to get dinner going so I just left it lumpy and it still turned out great. I also cooked the broccoli a bit first caus I wanted to make sure they were cooked well.

    4 Stars, a tasty budget dish -- a different way to serve sandwiches. Most people would want to increase the number of ingredients, but the recipe as written stretches out the ingredients to their maximum. I lined up my pieces of bread, so it looked to me like 6 sandwiches in the 9x13 pan. Serve these with soup, and you have a gussied up "soup and sandwich". Of all the ingredients, I would try to do without the cream cheese, but then I wouldn't have much of the strata effect. Personally I would use a lot of shredded Swiss cheese to replace the cheddar and cream cheese, and I would then also use rye bread -- cuz I am a "ham n' Swiss on rye" kind of gal. Overall I enjoyed this, especially the broccoli and ham, and it was very quick and easy to put together. Remade and photographed this 12.14.08 substituting rye bread, asparagus, and Swiss cheese, eliminating the cream cheese, and adding accents of fire-roasted red bell pepper for contrast - heavenly! Thanks for posting, 2Bleu. Made for Please Review My Recipe.
