Holiday Ham Breakfast Casserole

We had the honor of speaking at the Regional Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences Holiday Meeting and they served this amazing Holiday Ham Casserole. Shelley and I were really surprised that we found such a unique breakfast casserole that neither of us had tried before. It was promoted as a heart healthy recipe too as it was made with whole wheat bread.  We really enjoyed the topping which was made with corn flakes. I also loved that it was a ham casserole because I always serve ham at Christmas and I think this would be an amazing way to use the leftovers!

Comments

  1. I notice you use dry mustard, interesting. I wonder how it works in sweet potato casserole. Gotta try it and see.

    This is great for popping in the oven really early Thanksgiving morning so I can feed the troops and then get started on cooking dinner. Thanks!
