Ham and Cheese Breakfast Bake

Using leftover ham, I made a breakfast themed casserole. A mix of vegetables, cheese, eggs and potatoes meld with the saltiness of ham to create a wonderful reincarnation of leftovers that your family will look forward to.  Of course, as always, get creative, use your favorite vegetables and make a new tradition that will last in your family’s memories for years to come.

  1. well, I finally looked up the word “nosh” and your blog title makes sense now! AND, my vocabulary is larger…so are you referring to the Yiddish word that means eat sweets or the German word that means eat “on the sly?”

  2. This looks really, really good! Have not had breakfast yet…wonder if I have all the ingredients…Thank you for the like on my blog about Chicken Saute Sec!

  3. this look nosh … ham bake somehting I had many times while living in Belfast. Great dish .. but I never had it for breakfast. Never had it with potatoes – so this will be a try for the comming week. Thank you so much.

  4. This is so timely for me. We got a huge ham for the Easter weekend and have tons of leftovers and I’ve been searching for recipes using leftover ham. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

    1. Haha, I feel so bad for you and if we lived closer I would gladly give you some ham. On the good side, you had family around and now you have the story of the Easter your brother froze the ham to retell…

  5. Just had this … it’s superb – can’t remember if I increased the flour or not. How ever will keep an eye on myself better next time. Very tasty and love the potatoes in there. It came out so moist. Wonderful recipe. Thank you so much.

    1. Thank you. Glad to hear that you liked it and that the flour worked out for you. It is a very small amount just to get a very slight crust to it and hold it together. Thank you for letting me know how it turned out for you.
