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, begin by combining the cooked ham, Parmesan cheese, onion, and cubed croissants and arranging in a 9×13 baking dish that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or lightly coated with butter.

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

That’s it!

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

  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?

  3. This casserole is seriously tasty!  I made as written, except I mixed all of the cheese in with the ingredients instead of sprinkling the cheddar on top.  The only note is that this took way longer than 45 minutes to set.  At the 45 min mark the casserole was still mostly liquid, so I upped the temp to 375F and added an extra 30 minutes of cook time.
