With breakfast being my favorite meal, I was excited to give this recipe a try. The dish turned out wonderfully and I would just as quickly serve it at a party as I would add it into my weekly meal prep rotation. The slices were delicious freshly baked and great warmed up as leftovers, making for a quick and tasty breakfast before work.
The edges of the dish came out crisped to perfection and the flavor was phenomenal. I absolutely loved the ham and cheese and recommend trying it just as the recipe says at least once, but next time I will add in some peppers and onion to make it like a western omelet. Whether you’re doing the August Back to School Brunch or just looking for a quick meal that will last all week, this dish will be a hit with the whole family.
