What To Do With Leftover Easter Ham
Happy Easter! As you sit down to your traditional Easter Sunday meal of baked ham and all the trimmings, you may be wondering what to do with the leftover ham? This is one of the easiest leftover ham casserole recipes I’ve found, and it tastes great!
The only trick is you have to let it rest overnight before baking. So while you’re cleaning up, just pull out a small casserole and put this together. You’d have to refrigerate that leftover ham anyway, and now you’ll be able to pull out Easter Monday dinner!
Baked Ham and Cheese
- 6 cups cubed stale bread or 3 to 4 leftover dinner rolls
- 2 cups diced cooked ham
- 2 cups shredded cheese – whatever you have in the fridge
- 5 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1/2 tsp dry mustard
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 Tbl melted butter
- 1 cup bread crumbs
Grease a 9X9″ pan or 8-cup casserole dish
Place half the bread into the bottom of the dish
Add the ham over the bread and sprinkle the cheese over the top
Whisk together the eggs, milk, mustard, and salt. Pour over the other ingredients. Press lightly to ensure the bread soaks up the liquid.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat the oven to 375F.
Combine the bread crumbs and melted butter. Sprinkle over the casserole.
This recipe can be doubled if you wish. Leave room in your casserole for bubbling!
