I put together this ham and egg dish on Christmas Eve and refrigerate it. Then, while we open presents on Christmas morning, I pop it in the oven for breakfast. It’s a family tradition. —Ann Pool, Jerome, Idaho

Ingredients

  • 10 slices day-old bread, crusts removed and cubed
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 4 medium fresh mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 8 large eggs
  • 3 cups 2% milk
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Place the bread cubes in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. In a small skillet, saute onion and mushrooms in butter; spoon over bread. Sprinkle with cheese, ham and flour. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, mustard, garlic powder and salt. Pour over ham and cheese. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 60-70 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
