The family was tired of ham leftovers, and the over proofed course textured rolls I made for Easter. After watching a Rachel Ray TV show one day, I decided to make a strata. She was making a veggie one with cheese. Needing to use up my Easter leftovers, I added ham and different veggies, and of course, my own twist on it. This was the yummy outcome. Enjoy!
