I can’t remember the first time I had today’s recipe, but I know it was several years ago. It may have been at a church function or baby shower, but a lady from my ward named Kathy, made it, and I instantly fell in love. I knew I needed the recipe for this Ham n Cheese Strata because it was so cheesy and butter-y but I had forgotten to get it! :(Fast forward a few years and Kathy’s daughter married my little brother, and the strata was once again back in my life, so the next time I had it, I was sure to get the recipe. It’s probably one of the best breakfast casseroles I have ever tried! I love that it’s simple, delicious and perfect for so many occasions like brunches, baby showers or holiday breakfasts. 😉

This looks great! A great recipe to use for leftover ham. How would you adjust the cooking temp/time for an 8×8 or 9×9 instead of 9×13? Thanks!

    Thanks..it is great!! When you use smaller pans, the cooking time is more. I’m not sure how much more time to add, since I haven’t used that size, but try an hour, instead of 50 min, then you can add a couple min at a time, if you need to. Hope that helps!!

This was fantastic made a 1/2 batch in a 8×8 dish, cooked for 1 hour. Added a large diced onion lightly sautéed and it was great. So easy I just mix everything up together and add to a 8×8 let it sit overnight. Thanks for a great dish!!!!

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you so much for letting me know! I’m so happy to hear that you like it!!

How long do you think this could sit in the refrigerator before being cooked? This looks so yummy, and I am thinking of making for breakfast Christmas morning – but want to get all of my cooking done on Friday. Would two nights be too long? Thanks!

    Lil' Luna

    I honestly haven’t made it that far in advance. It could be ok. I don’t want to say yes, then it not, but it does need to be in the fridge overnight, so what’s two nights? Let me know what happens! Thanks so much!

Could this recipe be prepped, frozen then baked later?
