Breakfast Ham Casserole

Breakfast Ham Casserole

(6 servings)    Printable Version
  • 12 slices white bread - buttered
  • 3 cups ham - diced
  • 1/2 pound processed pasteurized cheese such as Velveeta - diced
  • 1 package (14 ounces) Baby Broccoli Florets
  • 6 large eggs - well beaten
  • 1 quart milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
This recipe received a couple favorable reviews, but it wasn't my favorite. I liked the flavor of the broccoli and ham together, but the egg-soaked bread as the bottom layer didn't do it for me. It had a French toast-like consistency that felt at odds with everything else in the casserole. The ham in the recipe provided plenty of salt, so I'd skip adding additional salt if I ever make this again - which I probably won't. I believe this recipe would have been much better if the bread was skipped completely (maybe add 2 more eggs to compensate). For a better ham casserole experience, I'd recommend trying a recipe called Wake-Up Casserole. (The recipe on this page was submitted in 2002. It was tested and photographed in May 2015.)

Quite heavy for breakfast. But my kids enjoyed them! And yes, I did them before I called it a day. Woke early to bake them though. YUM!

This is NOT a souffle. However, it is a great casserole. I served it for dinner and my kids ate it up!
