Wake up to this delicious and decadent brunch bake! A savory brunch bake is one of our favorite ways to use up leftovers after a holiday feast. Everyone always has a few pieces of stale bread laying around the day after a holiday. Any bread will do, even dinner rolls. This versatile recipe is fantastic for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and it works as a starter, side, or main dish.
Honey Baked Ham (diced)
1 1/4 CUPS
Stale Bread Torn into Chunks (any bread)
4 TO 5 PIECES
Large Yellow Onion (finely chopped)
Sliced Cremini Mushrooms
Fresh Herbs (thyme, rosemary, sage)
Begin by warming the butter in a pan over medium heat.
Once butter is hot, add the onion and cook until soft, about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove the onions from the pan and set aside.
Add the olive oil to the pan. Once the oil is hot, add the mushrooms to the pan along with 1/2 tsp of salt. Cook mushrooms until browned, another 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the mushrooms from the pan and add to the onions.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Next, prepare the custard. In a large mixing bowl combine the eggs, milk, cream, pepper, nutmeg, thyme and remaining salt and whisk until smooth.
In an 8x8 inch baking pan, mix the Honey Baked Ham, 3/4 cup of cheese, bread chunks, onions and mushrooms. Spread the mixture evenly across the bottom of the pan.
Pour the custard over the bread mixture, filling up the pan. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Let everything sit for 10 minutes to allow the custard to soak into the bread mixture.
Bake for 50 to 60 minutes. Let the Brunch Bake rest for 10 minutes before serving.
Spoon some onto a plate and ENJOY IMMENSELY!!!
