Ham and Cheese Puff
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 55 min.
Makes2 casseroles (12 servings each)
Good and hearty breakfast. I love ones that can be made ahead and use simple ingredients! Will try with some cooked sausage since I can't eat ham often!
I just put this in the refrigerator. I have never looked forward to breakfast so far in advance! Follow up. I will make this again, but use less milk. Maybe half the milk and double the eggs? Mine took forever to cook all the way through. This was my fault because I used a deep casserole dish. Next time I will use a larger pan so that it cooks faster. I loved the smell of mustard while it was baking. Not sure if everyone did though.
I cut this recipe in 1/4 for just my husband and I. I used a three-cheese Italian bread and smoked sausage, and those were awesome. Unfortunately, I forgot to let it sit overnight so I only had it sitting for about an hour before putting it in the oven. I think that was my downfall. The entire thing puffed up REALLY huge and dripped some sort of grease/juice all inside my oven. Usually my oven runs a bit hot so things get done quicker, but I found I actually needed to put this in longer (65 minutes I believe). The top started getting burned but the inside was so runny. We were running late at the time, so I dished out the top, mostly-done portion and we ate that, while I continued to bake the rest. It did taste good, but again, too runny for me. Also next time I think I'll put it into a bigger dish (not an 8x8), and I may cut the oven back to about 325. We definitely liked this and I do want to try it again. I will post an update when I do.
One of my favorite combos, ham and cheese and bread!! love this one
This recipe was been a favorite since I first made it in 2010. Was paging through old copies of TOH & found it. How I missed it when it was first published, I don't know. The only change I make after following the recipe the first time is to reduce the amount of bread by 1 cup. Delicious!
I found this recipe in Taste of Home book from years ago and we love it. When I've had leftover rolls or crusts from bread I've use that and it turns out just as good. For my daughter's shower we had a brunch and I made this recipe and one without using the ham but added vegetables and both were a hit. It is my go to recipe for a breakfast casserole.
If you do not have time for it to sit overnight, it also works to assemble and let it sit about 30 minutes before putting it in the oven. At least it works when making 1/4 of the recipe and using regular bread : )
Made this morning for church potluck. It received great reviews. Thanks for a yummy recipe.
