I like to prepare this breakfast bake when I have ham leftovers and day-old bread on hand. It's a delicious brunch dish. I love that it's prepared the night before, which allows me to focus on making other dishes for the meal. —Elizabeth Hesse, Springville, New York

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 10 slices white bread, cubed
  • 2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
  • 1/2 pound American cheese, cubed
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, saute green pepper in butter until tender. Remove green pepper, reserving drippings. Combine the green pepper, bread and ham; place in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
  2. Add cheese to drippings; cook and stir over low heat until cheese melts. Pour over bread mixture. Whisk the eggs, milk and mustard; pour over cheese. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45-55 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
