Ham and Broccoli Egg Casserole

The perfect dish for Christmas brunch! We used the leftovers from our Christmas Eve ham and prepped the night before so the bread can properly soak up the egg mixture. We popped in the oven while opening up presents and it was ready in 50 minutes. We enjoyed it with a few mimosas while watching A Christmas Story.

Ingredients:

7 eggs
3 cups of cubed sourdough bread
1 cup shredded extra sharp cheddar
1 cup of chopped broccoli
1 cup of sliced green onions
1 cup of chopped ham
2 cups of half & half
salt and pepper

Directions:

Scatter half of the bread in a buttered 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup of cheese, then add the vegetables, meat and remaining bread. Pour the custard on top; cover with plastic wrap and let refrigerate overnight (bring to room temperature before baking). Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Uncover; sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Bake until slightly puffed and just set, 40 to 50 minutes. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.
