What's For Breakfast? Mini Ham and Cheese Stratas!

Once all the celebrating is done on New Year's Eve, everyone will head off to bed to get some sleep.  The next morning, breakfast can sometimes be a situation of scrounge for whatever you can find and go for it.  That's all going to change once you see what I made today!


These sweet little ramekins are filled with the perfect way to start your day!  Eggs, cheese, ham... even some diced up bread cubes... kind of hard to say that this won't taste good with these ingredients.

Today, I got my workout in and since I am home with My Boys this week, took advantage of having some leisure time in the morning to make something different for breakfast.

They deflated a wee bit between the time I took them out of the oven and when I got my camera ready to go... a little better planning would've helped!  I think they still look pretty amazing and was so ready to dig into them.

Creamy and satisfying, you could definitely add different spices or flavors to amp these breakfast beauties up a bit.  I love using the ramekins to have these pre-portioned out because it would be so easy to go back for more if this was made in a larger baking dish.  You could definitely do that, but I think I'll stick with my "minis".

I had wrapped the extra one up and put it in the fridge thinking I could have it for breakfast tomorrow... but, when lunch time came and My Oldest was rummaging for something more interesting than a sandwich he pulled it out.  Next thing I know, I have a request from him that I make these for breakfast every morning.  Thankfully, these can be made ahead of time and they reheat nicely in the microwave... so, I can certainly accomodate that request.
