    This was delicious!! Both my husband and I loved it. I used bacon in place of the olive oil and ham and added just a few halved cherry tomatoes. Will be making this again and again!

    This is a very good recipe. I traded 1/2 n 1/2 for heavy cream and chicken for ham. I needed to season the chicken before and add some more seasoning but it was very good.

    Yummy! My husband and I have been eatting a low carb diet for over a year now and I'm constantly on the lookout for more recipes to change things up a bit. Instead of broccoli I cut up several mushrooms, onions, and half a green pepper and added it to the ham. I like the light and fluffy texture the cream provided in this dish. I ate the leftovers for breakfast this morning. :) I plan on making variations of this recipe in the future, thank you for providing the good bones.

    Great for low carbers and tastes so good. I used bacon & white onion and it was terrific. I will try cooking 5-10 min less tomorrow when I make it again as the corners (I baked in a 8x8 alum pan) were slightly overdone. I really enjoyed cooking this on Sunday and simply reheating Mon, Tues for a quick weekday breakfast. I am making this tomorrow with hot and spicy sausage and onion. I bet this will be great with market fresh veggies this spring/summer.
