Ham & Swiss Croissant Casserole

Ham & Swiss Croissant Casserole

I could eat a breakfast casserole morning, noon and night.  The key to this one is good quality ham and Swiss along with fresh croissants.  I head to my deli counter and buy a sun dried and tomato ham sliced thick, so that I can dice it at home and then I have them slice me off a big wedge of fresh Swiss that I grate at home.  I love the sun dried and tomato ham, but you could use whatever ham you love the most.  The ham, the gooey cheese and the buttery croissants will have you going back for seconds (and thirds).  Enjoy!

This recipe serves six to eight.

Shopping List
6 large croissants, torn into pieces
6 eggs, lightly scrambled
2 cups of milk
2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard
1 pound of good quality ham, cut into cubes
2 cups of grated Swiss cheese

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Grease (I used Pam) a 9×13 casserole dish.

Take your torn croissants and place them down in your casserole dish.   Set aside.

In a bowl, whisk together your eggs, milk, and Dijon.  Stir in your ham and shredded Swiss.  Pour this egg mixture down over your bread.

At this point, you could cover and refrigerate overnight or you could immediately pop it in the oven.

This casserole bakes uncovered about 55 to 60 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to sit about five minutes before cutting into squares and serving.

A slice of this along with a cup of coffee and you are set!  (Or serve it alongside a big green salad for supper!)  An easy breakfast recipe sure to please!

    Have you ever tried this with a different type of cheese? It looks AMAZING but I have zero Swiss cheese fans in my house…I’m wondering how it would turn out with cheddar.

      A cheddar would be delicious in this too!

    This is a weird question, but what brand is the ham that you buy? Because it sounds divine and all the hams they have at our deli are pretty plain. Maybe they don’t carry the same brand?

      Boar’s Head makes this particular ham :).

    This would be perfect to take to my Sunday school class on easter morning!! I’ve never tried croissants baked in a casserole. Great recipe!

    The sundried tomato ham sounds yummy. Would you mind sharing what brand of deli meat it is? I have just started following but am loving the blog. Fashion, food and books…with some sweet adoption stories…awesome!

    Shay, I made this yesterday for Easter brunch. It was a big hit and making it ahead on Satuday worked out perfect. Popped in the oven and got to work on all my other cooking. I’ll be making this again! Thank you for sharing!!
