Today’s recipe is for a cheesy ham breakfast casserole that includes some fun ingredients to change things up. Yes, it includes eggs, ham, and cheese. However, it also has chives-and-onion cream cheese, southwest style hash browns, roasted red pepper, Parmesan cheese, and panko bread crumbs. I especially loved the panko topping. It added a nice crunch. It only fills an 8 or 9 inch square dish but you could easily double it and make it in a 9 x 13.
The other great thing about this dish is you are suppose to be make at at least 4 hours in advance. So make it the night before and then in the morning all you have to do is throw it in the oven. I know you all love a good overnight breakfast or brunch dish. They make life easier. This one is also full of flavor. YUM!
This cheesy ham breakfast casserole would be perfect for Easter morning or a great way to use up leftover ham from Easter dinner.
