I've made this for holiday breakfasts and shower brunches. It's a big hit. It's also a welcome change at covered-dish dinners at church. There's never another one like it there.—Anita Gattis, Hawkinsville, Georgia


  • 16 slices day-old bread, crusts removed and cubed
  • 1 pound cubed fully cooked ham
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 6 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 cups 2% milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash to 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups finely crushed cornflakes
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. Place half of the bread cubes in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Layer with ham, cheeses and remaining bread cubes.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and seasonings; pour over the top. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  3. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Combine the cornflakes and butter; sprinkle over casserole.
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
