  • Cut bread slices into quarters. Arrange half the bread into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared dish in an even layer to cover completely.

  • Mix ham and Cheddar cheese in bowl; spread over the bread layer and top with remaining bread.

  • Beat milk, eggs, and mustard together in a bowl until smooth; pour over the bread to soak completely.

  • Put corn flakes cereal into a bowl; drizzle melted butter over the cereal and stir to coat. Spread coated cereal over the top of the casserole.

  • Cover casserole with plastic wrap and refrigerate 8 hours to overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  • Bake in preheated oven until the corn flakes are browned, about 1 hour.

Cook's Notes:

You can refrigerate for just a few hours if you're in a rush.

Delicious dish.. the higher milk to egg ratio made this very creamy rather than firm and I liked that a lot. I cut back on the cheese a bit as well. Right now the recipe show 1/2 CUP of dry mustard when the personal recipe shows 1/2 tsp.. Please dont use 1/2 cup of dry mustard...that would be a disaster Read More

This wasn’t the greatest. We made it just like the recipe said and it wasn’t done after cooking for an hour in the morning. It’s been 90 minutes and it’s still not quite set. It smells yummy but I’m frustrated at how it’s turning out and how long it’s taking. Read More

I made this according to the directions exactly. The consistency of the custard was light and fluffy but bland. I felt that there were way too many corn flakes on top. If I make it again, I plan to add a healthy layer of salsa on top of the ham and use half of the corn flakes and butter. Read More

I love breakfast casseroles, but I know that I will have to increase the temperature and time in my oven, and possibly change other ingredients as well. I follow a lot of recipes and love to bake and the one thing I wish AllRecipes and others would do is include the elevation and humidity when the recipe was tested. I live in Las Vegas NV, 2000 feet, and I am always having to adjust recipes. Sometimes I think that all recipes were tested at sea level. Read More

I’ve been making this for years; family favorite! but- you need six eggs, 1.5 cups shredded Swiss and 1 lb shredded cheddar. Also add 1/2 tsp onion salt, and a small bag of thawed, chopped, drained broccoli, to layer with ham and cheese. It makes a huge difference. I like to cut the bread in smaller pieces (6 or 8) so the egg mixture distributed more thoroughly. Pour it in SLOWLY. If I’m ambitious, I sautée chopped onion as well. I have found that it MUST be refrigerated overnight. Even better- Bake it a day before and warm in oven at 300 degrees before serving. It holds together better, and flavor develops. It’s fantastic next day. I bake it and take it to weekend getaways. Love this casserole. Read More
