Broccoli, Ham, and Cheese Muffin Tin Strata

Simple, portable breakfast or brunch! Ham and Cheese Strata baked in a muffin tin!

Let’s talk brunch.

I personally love brunch. First of all, it makes me feel very fancy. Boring, plain people don’t eat brunch. They eat breakfast and/or lunch. Cool people have brunch.

That’s a fact, you guys.

Also, I’m never hungry first thing in the morning. And breakfast foods are okay, and lunch foods are okay, but when you mix them all up together, everyone is happy.

So, I grabbed my ham and broccoli and cheese and I tossed them all together with some crusty French bread and I poured my favorite eggs right over the top and I made brunch.

Back up. Favorite eggs? Either a) you’re wondering what’s so special about my favorite brand of eggs, or b) you’ve been reading long enough to know that I’ve been working with Davidson’s Safest Choice for quite some time now, helping to spread the word about just why exactly they are my favorite.

The reason they’re my favorite is because they’re pasteurized. Mostly, for me, this means that I can eat as much raw cookie dough as I want without worrying about getting samonella. For my kids it means that I can happily and safely make them eggnog all year long (it’s their favorite drink!) and for you it means that you no longer need to worry about raw eggs. Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs get gently pasteurized in a water bath, killing all bacteria and viruses.

So, back to brunch.

These little hand held stratas are loaded with veggies, ham, and cheese for a filling and hearty meal. Serve them with a salad on the side or with some fresh fruit. You can also easily change up what you mix in. Swap the ham for sausage or bacon, switch to spinach instead of broccoli, add some onions or bell peppers. These are easy to customize to your tastes! They also make a great weekday breakfast. Just grab and go!
