Bring eggs and ham together in a cheesy casserole.

Makes: 6 servings

Prep: 15 mins

Bake: 40 mins

  • 4 - 6 slices white bread, crust trimmed and discarded, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 4 cups)
  • 8 ounces sliced deli ham, coarsely chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees . Grease a 2-quart baking dish. Layer the bread, ham, 2 cups cheese and 2 tablespoons chives in the dish. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Pour into the dish and top with the tomato slices in an even layer.
  2. Bake the eggs until nearly set, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup cheese and 1 tablespoon chives on top and bake until golden.
Tip Pair with:
  • Wolf Blass Yellow Label Brut NV (Australia), Freixenet Cordon Negro Brut NV (Spain)
Tip Veg out:
  • Skip the ham and swap in an extra layer of sliced tomatoes.
