I like finding a breakfast food that can be taken in the car and eaten without a mess. I also had some leftover cans of crescent rolls from our family Thanksgiving dinner. So this morning I combined those two elements, and came up with this dish.

How To Make ham & cheese breakfast bake

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375°F. Unroll crescent rolls and press them in the bottom and up the sides of a 9 x 9-inch baking pan, pressing the seams together and making them cover the pan evenly.
  • 2
    Lay out slices of deli ham on top of crust, using enough ham to make a double layer. Sprinkle with the grated cheese. Beat together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper until well combined. Pour carefully over cheese.
  • 3
    Bake for 30 minutes until crust edges are browned and it puffs up, checking to be sure middle is done by testing with a thin-blade knife. Allow to set at least 10 minutes before slicing to serve.
