I remember going to a Christmas party many, many years ago with a friend, and on the table was one of those spiral baked hams with a honey mustard glaze. My friend and I were waiting for the rest of the people to arrive. We had to literally remove ourselves from the room because we couldn’t stop eating this incredibly delicious ham. I kept saying, “Only just one more nibble.” It was THAT good!
Whether you are hosting a brunch party or serving your family breakfast, these delicious savory breakfast casseroles are a cinch to put together. Healthy and filling, with ingredients such as cheese, sausage or bacon, veggies and, of course, eggs as the main ingredient.
Do the prep work the day before, cover with foil and refrigerate. Then, bake the casserole dish in the morning and serve warm with bagels or fruit.
Here you will find breakfast casseroles with a hash brown crust and casseroles that can also be sweet, such as a French Toast Casserole with blueberries or apples which is a favorite for adults and kids.
Now that the holidays are over and we can get back to our healthy groove, readers are requesting Lo Carb recipes!
Ham, Cheese, Veggies and egg beautifully whipped up to be a Lo Carb, guilt free muffin.
I used my Pampered Chef Muffin pan, no need to spray this non-stick pan. I filled each cup with sauteed veggies, ham and poured egg mixture to the top, sprinkled with cheese.
The muffins rise while in the oven, like a souffle, but then deflate after cooling down.
Serve warm. Refrigerate left overs, heat for 1 minute in microwave for a quick breakfast.

Happy New Year from Moore or Less Cooking Food Blog!! This is my first post for the New Year 2015. Wow. It doesn’t seem possible! It feels like it just was 2000!
I baked an 8 pound ham the other day, so I had some leftovers. I wanted to create a pasta dish with ham, cheese and onions. So I did some experimenting, and this is what I created!
It is so delicious! With a crunchy cheesy top and creamy pasta with ham and onion casserole. I was all out of small pasta, so I broke up a box of linguini into smaller pieces.
Ingredients are pasta, ham, sharp cheddar cheese, chicken broth, milk, panko crumbs, butter, fresh ground pepper.
Hubs is crazy about ham and my kids are crazy about mac and cheese, so this is the perfect combo! No need to add any salt, the ham gives it the perfect salty flavor.
The great thing about this recipe is that you can use any kind of cheese that you have in the refrigerator, Jack, Muenster, Asiago, Goat, Pepper Jack, or a combo of what tastes good to you!
This casserole reheats very well, it would also be a great idea to bring to a friends house for the holidays or if you would like to share a casserole. Prep is easy and you can have a delicious meal in under and hour.

When we lived in New Jersey, we loved ordering a Spiral Honey Baked Ham for Christmas Eve. You would think hubs won the lottery with that ham. He would make ham sandwiches, lots of mustard, ham and eggs, and ham and potato soup! The recipes are limitless with a big ham.
I decided to make my own ham with Dijon mustard, brown sugar and Maple syrup. It tasted just as great or even better than a Honey Baked Ham! Make one for your Christmas Eve.
Better than a Honey baked Ham that you buy pre-made. Make your Christmas Eve special and serve with mashed potatoes, mac and cheese and green beans.
- 1 (9-pound) store bought bone-in spiral ham
- 3/4 cup water
- For the glaze:
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons whole-grain Dijon mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
- Place ham in a roasting pan and pour about 3/4 cup water into the bottom of pan. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour and 40 minutes or until heated through, soft and tender.
- Make the glaze:
- Whisk all ingredients together in a saucepan until smooth and heat over medium-low to medium heat until simmering. Simmer for 2 minutes and remove from heat.
- When ham is heated through, remove the aluminum foil, and pour or brush the glaze over the top to cover completely. Raise oven temperature to 400 degrees F.
- Return the ham to the oven and cook, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until glaze is caramelized and bubbly. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with desired fixings.
Strata means layers… generally layers of egg-soaked bread and meat of some kind (ham, sausage, bacon) and cheese. It is baked like a casserole.
This is the other very popular strata ( Overnight egg casserole) that I prepared for the Bridal Breakfast that I catered last month. Other Items on the menu were a BROWN SUGAR STREUSEL COFFEE CAKE, Blueberry Crumb Coffee Cake, OVERNIGHT SAUSAGE AND EGG BAKE, Overnight Vegetarian Egg Bake, Fresh Fruit Salad, Coffee and Juices.
I did all of the preparation the day before, so the morning of the breakfast, I just popped the strata’s in the oven so that they would be warm and ready for a beautiful breakfast.
I doubled this recipe since there was a party of 23 people. Martha Stewart’s recipe calls for Canadian Bacon, but I substituted small round ham, the same size as the English Muffin.
Recipe semi adapted from Everyday Food, May 2006
- Butter, softened (for pan)
- 4 English Muffins, split, toasted
- ½ pound sliced (about 10 slices) small round sliced Ham
- 1¼ cups shredded (5 ounces) sharp Cheddar Cheese
- 8 large eggs
- 3 cups milk
- 1½ tablespoons Dijon Mustard
- Coarse Salt and ground pepper
- ¼ teaspoon Hot Sauce, such as Tabasco
- Generously Butter a 2-quart shallow baking dish (oval or square); set aside.
- In a baking dish, alternately arrange, cut side down, muffin halves and Ham.
- Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
- Set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, mustard, ½ teaspoon salt, a pinch of pepper, and hot sauce until combined.
- Pour over English muffins and ham; cover tightly with plastic wrap.
- Refrigerate at least 2 hours and up to overnight.
- Place large pan over strata, place heavy pan on top. ( So all ingredients will be covered in egg mixture, soaked.)
- In the morning, Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place baking dish on a rimmed baking sheet; remove plastic wrap.
- Bake until puffed and set in the center (see note below), about 1 hour and 30 minutes. (Tent loosely with foil if strata starts to brown too quickly.)
- Let stand 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
- Let the strata chill 2 hours, and it will be nice and moist. If you leave it overnight in the refrigerator, it will be even more custardy.
- To test to see if it is done, use a sharp knife and insert in center; it should not be jiggly, but should feel firm and the knife should come out clean.
- Arrange the muffin halves and Ham upright for beautiful presentation and easier serving.
- When cutting, you'll be able to see the layers and make sure each portion contains a few pieces of bread and ham.
