I am starting to get excited for Easter! Just a few days away and I’ve got Easter baskets ready to go, eggs stuffed for the hunt, and a ham in my fridge. The ham is what I’m most excited about.

Ham is my FAVORITE. I totally look forward to making a big ham each Christmas and Easter because we always have leftovers. And leftover ham is the best. I use it in all sorts of recipes like Chicken Cordon Bleu Crescent Rolls, Ham and Cheese Breakfast Bars, and this awesome Ham and Cheese Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole that I’m sharing with you today.

This casserole makes an appearance about a half dozen times each year. Usually at Christmas, Easter (or shortly thereafter), Mother’ Day, and random weekend mornings. I can count on my sister calling me on Christmas Eve to ask for the recipe. This happens annually ever since I moved out about 10 years ago :)

Extra cheesy and packed with flavor, it takes just minutes to throw together and then it’s off to the oven. I usually use cheddar or monterey jack but any cheese will do. Make it with pepper jack for an extra kick!

Most casseroles tend to be wildly versatile and this one is no exception. The peppers can be swapped out for different veggies and the ham can be swapped out for any breakfast meat of your choice (we love it with sausage!).

For Christmas I use red and green bell peppers and it’s both fun and festive. I had an assortment of peppers today so I used parts of a red, green, and yellow bell pepper.  Use what you have.

  1. Breakfast casseroles are so awesome for using up leftover meat… not to mention a fun breakfast-for-dinner option! I have a recipe I use like this with sausage, but I don’t think it matters the meat so much, it’s so good either way!

    Thanks for sharing! Goodness knows we all need variety in leftover-recipes for holiday dinners! :)

  3. i just took the carrot cake out of the oven and had a bite and OH MY GAAAWWWD!!!! – it’s so yummy. I made it for my husband because it’s his favorite but gotta say I am totally impressed. Thank you !!!!!

    The breakfast casserole looks great! Could it be made a day ahead of time?

  5. Its a breakfast for dinner kind of night! Can’t wait to try this!! I made a few changes….cream of mushroom soup instead of evaporated skim milk and grated zucchini instead of green peppers.

  6. I made the breakfast casserole, which looked delicious in the picture, but unfortunately it came out awful for me. Very embarrassing, as I had company visiting. I think it was the evaporated milk. It doesn’t have a good taste in this dish :(

  7. So good and super quick and easy!

  8. Super easy, quick and a total crowd pleaser!
