The Perfect Breakfast Casserole for Christmas Morning!

I can’t believe it is almost Christmas! I’m finishing up my Christmas shopping, and I plan on spending the next week or so making food! 🙂 OK, I still have to work and I still have plenty of packages to wrap, but beyond that I plan on baking and cooking up a storm. I love making and delivering goodies to friends and neighbors and making meals to share with my family over the Christmas holiday. One of my favorite meals to prepare and serve is BREAKFAST! I’ve already shared my recipe for Norwegian Pancakes, which are a tradition on Thanksgiving and Christmas morning. In addition to pancakes however, we always serve a savory dish as well for those who like a little protein with their morning meal. 🙂

This delicious breakfast casserole, that my mother-in-law shared with me right after I married her son, has been my go-to savory dish on Christmas morning ever since. Today I want to share it with you. It’s perfect for Christmas morning because it’s actually BEST when made the day before.

Grandma Nystul’s Breakfast Casserole

Ingredients

  • 16 slices cubed white bread
  • About 2.5 pounds diced ham (I used 2, 1.25 pound, pre-cooked ham steaks)
  • 1 (10 oz) can sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 pound mild cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 cup crushed corn flakes
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted

Directions

Put half the bread in a buttered 9×13 pan.

Next add the diced ham, mushrooms, cheese and the rest of the bread.

Whip together eggs, milk and mustard. Pour over the bread. Cover the casserole with foil or plastic wrap and store in the fridge overnight.

The next morning, sprinkle the corn flakes over the top of the casserole and drizzle the melted butter over the cereal. Bake at 350 for 60 minutes or until the top of the casserole is golden brown.

Let the casserole rest for a bit after you take it out of the oven. Serve and enjoy!

This recipe makes a BIG casserole so there’s plenty to feed a crowd. It has been feeding my extended family for many years now and I’m sure will continue to do so for many more years to come!

What is your traditional Christmas morning breakfast?
