How To Make brunch casserole - cassies

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375 degree F...if baking right away, if not baking until the next morning, take out of fridge 30 minutes in advance, before baking.
  • 2
    In a bowl beat eggs, milk, salt & pepper, set aside.
  • 3
    Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non stick cooking spray or grease with butter. Break bread into pieces and place in bottom of dish.
  • 4
    Saute onion and garlic ( optional ) I like to cook onion until just translucent. You can put in raw if you like. To casserole, sprinkle with spinach, peppers, onion and garlic.
  • 5
    Then add ham...toss all ingredients.
  • 6
    Pour egg mixture evenly over bread mixture. If bread floats, pushed down into egg, so everything is coated.
  • 7
    Top with cheese...cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  • 8
    Remove foil and continue baking another 15 - 25 minutes until golden.
  • 9
    Let sit for 10 minutes before cutting... Enjoy!!
