  1. Generously grease a 9x13-inch glass baking dish with softened butter. Stir together flour and mustard powder. Place ham and Cheddar cubes in a large mixing bowl, sprinkle with flour mixture, and toss until evenly coated. Add bread cubes and toss to mix. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and hot pepper sauce.
  2. Pour 1/3 of the bread mixture into the prepared baking dish and smooth out to form a layer. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of butter, and sprinkle with 1/3 of the Parmesan cheese. Repeat twice more to form three layers. Pour egg mixture overtop, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate 8 hours to overnight.
  3. The next morning, remove casserole from refrigerator, remove plastic wrap, and allow to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Bake uncovered in preheated oven until the eggs have set, and the top is golden brown and crispy, about 1 hour.

Wow, I cut come corners (did not do layers, added parm to top of casserole) and I am very impressed! I added cayenne to the flour mixture. Really fluffy and delicious.

There is no way to mess up this recipe. No matter what you do, it's still going to be yummy! I needed a recipe to use up 1/2 a loaf of white bread and some deli ham. I had 1/3 loaf of Velvee...

I prepared this recipe for my large family at Easter brunch. I changed it just a little bit by adding pancetta in addtion to the ham. My picky brother who wont eat anything, eventually gave it a...

This recipe went over well at a bridal shower brunch. I'm not usually sensitive to salt, but I found this to be a bit salty. I did not have enough cheddar this time, so I added in a little fon...

This was a very good recipe, although it was a bit salty. I was worried about the large amount of ham called for, especially since I was feeding a group who is trying to watch their salt intake...

I made this for Easter Brunch. Making this ahead of time makes it easy to spend time with the family and not in the kitchen. Even the "picky" eaters loved this.

This was excellent. I did make a few changes-added more eggs, and less milk. I combined 9 eggs, and 2 cups of milk. It served 6 adults. Made Hash Browns for a side.

I make this everytime company comes! It is also good with bacon or sausage! Thanks.
