Ham and Cheese Egg Casserole


I have a habit that can either be brilliant or a total disaster.  Here’s the drill.

I’m hungry, what’s in the fridge?   Pull out 3 items.

What can I make with this? Time to google the ingredients.

Scan the search results.  No, no, no – aha!

That sounds good. Click the link.

That looks good but I don’t have X ingredient…Next!

That’s an interesting spice…After three or four more iterations, I HAVE A PLAN.

Sometimes these plans go horribly wrong – like anise seed dressing (so bitter) or chili powder in frosting (don’t ask!).


I just love when my husband gets to take his morning calls from home. It gives me a chance to make breakfast, almost like another weekend morning. But what should I make? Check the fridge…

Today’s ingredients: Ham (leftover from Easter), Cheese (Cheddar and Mozzarella), Eggs

– Ham and Cheese Egg Casserole – Perfect! I can get it ready and do my Monday morning cleaning while it’s baking. Here goes…


½ medium onion, chopped

1-2 cloves of garlic, minced

1 small can or ½ cup chopped mushrooms

1 cup diced ham

Shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheese

6-8 large eggs

Splash of milk

Salt and Pepper, to taste

1 tbsp. Thyme

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 8×8 in. glass pan (need to see through to test for doneness).
  2. Sauté onion and garlic in olive oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and sauté for 5 additional minutes. Move into greased pan.
  3. Dice cooked ham into small cubes and add to pan.
  4. Sprinkle mozzarella and cheddar cheese over ham mixture. About ½ cup each.
  5. Crack eggs into a bowl, season with salt, pepper, thyme and milk. Remember only 1 splash! Anymore and it will take longer to bake. Whisk until well mixed.
  6. Pour eggs over ham mixture. Use a fork to mix and ensure the egg gets to the bottom of the pan. Add shredded cheddar to the top.
  7. Bake at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Casserole should be firm to the touch and no liquid remains on the sides. Serve with toast and coffee.

    Are your recipes printable? I didn’t see any way to print the recipe, is it just me? Thanks.
