Rise and Shine Casserole

Getting up early for a sunrise service on Sunday?  Looking for something to do with leftover Easter ham?  Have a ton of family spending the night, and you need breakfast fast?  Give this recipe a shot!


  • 8 frozen hash brown patties
  • 4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 pound cooked ham, cut into cubes
  • 7 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Arrange hash brown patties on the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese and ham over patties.
  3. Beat eggs, milk, salt, and mustard in a large bowl using a whisk; pour over ham. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Remove foil and bake until edges are golden brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes more.

But wait!  This recipe can also be tweaked by adding a ton of other ingredients like chives, mushrooms, and other veggies.  Don't have hash browns?  Substitute with toast, bagels, or other goodies.
