Ham 'n' Egg Casserole

On the weekends I like to make breakfast that is easy and tastes good. On Taste of Home page I found this casserole and it seemed to fit the bill. We enjoyed this recipe and I will make it again. It would make a good Mothers Day recipe. I did change the recipe; added onion, celery and toasted the bread cubes.

Ham 'n' Egg Casserole


1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped onion 1/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup butter, cubed
10 slices white bread, cubed, toasted
2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
1 cup velveta cheese, cubed
6 eggs
2 cups milk
1 tsp. ground mustard


Preheat oven 375ยบ.
Cube the slices of bread you are using.
Place in oven until lightly toasted.
In a large skillet, saute green peppers, onion, celery in butter until tender.
Remove vegetables reserving the drippings in skillet.
Combine the vegetables, bread and ham and place into an un-greased 13X9 baking dish.

Add cheese to drippings; stir over low heat until cheese melts.
Pour over bread mixture.
In a medium size bowl combine, eggs, milk and mustard and pour over cheese.
Cover and put in frig overnight. Or for at least 2 hours before baking.
Remove from frig for at least 30 minutes before baking.
Bake, uncovered for 45 to 55 minutes or until a knife inserted into center comes out clean.
Let rest for 5 minutes and then serve.
Makes 10 to 12 servings.

That sounds delicious. I'll be making that for Grampy and I. I think toasting the bread is a good idea. Otherwise the bread would lose it's consistency. Have a blessed day.
