How to Make Ham and Cheese Croissant Breakfast Casserole

It is so easy to throw all of the ingredients together that you’ll have it whipped up and prepped for the refrigerator in no time.

To make it, I begin by combining my cooked ham, Parmesan cheese, onion, and cubed croissants and arranging in a 9×13 baking dish that I’ve sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or lightly coated with butter.

Then, I whisk together my milk, cream, and eggs and pour over the croissant mixture.

That’s it!

Then, I wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and pop it into the refrigerator overnight to chill. This lets the croissants absorb as much of the liquid as possible for a creamy and delicious breakfast casserole.

The next morning, I preheat the oven and then bake my Ham and Cheese Croissant Casserole until it is cooked through and browned, about 45 minutes. You’ll want to remove it from the oven and let it rest for about five minutes or so before serving.

It is delicious served with fresh fruit for a full breakfast or as part of a larger breakfast buffet.

Think of all those office brunches or showers where this casserole would be just perfect!

  1. Is there a substitution for ham for a vegetarian version?  I guess you can omit the ham but what would be a nice substitute to keep it elegant?  Thank you.

  2. could you freeze after assembling?
