How to Make Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole:

Let me just tell you right now, this is one of the easiest breakfast casserole dishes to assemble. Layer the bread, cheese, and ham combine ingredients for egg mixture pour over layers, let it sit, and then bake. That’s it! I know, it is sooo easy! Seriously, see for yourself:

  1. In a greased 9×13 pan, layer half of the bread, half of the cheese and then the ham. Repeat these layers again.
  2. Mix the eggs, milk, and melted butter in a bowl and then pour over the layers in the pan. (Tip: The milk should be room temperature before adding the melted butter. Otherwise, the butter will harden up instead of mixing with the other two ingredients- not a good thing.)
  3. Refrigerate overnight for the best results. If you’re pinched for time, refrigerate it for at least for 2 hours.
  4. When you’re ready, bake the casserole at 350° for 45-50 minutes. Enjoy!

Delicious Cabot Cheese.

Cabot proudly offers a wide selection of award-winning cheeses made with pure, rich milk straight from their family farms. 

Cheddar is arguably the world’s most popular cheese—and Vermont is the home of the World’s Best Cheddar. 

Cabot Cheddar cheese varieties have been awarded Best in Class at national and international cheese competitions for more than twenty years running! So it probably goes without saying that they are passionate about cheese. In fact, they can distinguish between mild and sharp Cheddar cheese with just one bite!

They also know how Cheddar cheese is made, how it’s best served, and most importantly, how to distinguish its sharpness. But for the farm families who own Cabot, it’s not just about great tasting cheese—making the World’s Best Cheddar, and other fine cheeses, it is their livelihood. So, they also analyze cheese industry market trends and statistics—particularly as they pertain to small cheesemaking companies and naturally aged cheeses. Simply put, they are the cheese experts. 

As a farmer-owned cooperative, Cabot works in partnership with the Vermont Dairy Industry, the Vermont Cheese Council, and state agencies including Agriculture and Tourism. And since they are a small state, they work closely with their friends and neighbors in related industries. 

Slice the bread.

Then cut the bread into cubes.

Layer half of the bread, ham, and cheese. Repeat the layers.

Pour egg mixture over the layers.

All of the liquid will be absorbed.

Place in the refrigerator overnight.
