I made this casserole to bring to work for our Friday Food Feast. This egg bake is INCREDIBLE. Everyone loved it, and I had so many wonderful compliments! The bake time was about 7 minutes longer than what is listed, but perhaps that was just my oven. Just follow the instruction to bake it until the tester comes out clean. So glad I found this recipe!

Made this yesterday morning. It took MUCH longer than 35-40 mins to bake. In fact, an hour after being put in, I removed it and cut two pieces from one end and microwaved to complete the cooking process so we could eat. I then put the remainder back into the oven to finish cooking as the middle was still uncooked. Otherwise it was very light and very good...almost like a souffle. I will make it again, but will give it more time to bake.

This is a great recipe! I am a cheese lover, but cut back a little on the cheese. I also cut the milk and flour in half. It still came out perfect. My hubby and coworkers loved it.

This is my favorite brunch recipe. I took this casserole to Easter brunch at church and received several compliments. I have substituted bacon and sausage for the ham and have gotten equally good results.
