Easy Ham & Cheese Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast casseroles are a favorite at our house. We love to eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This Ham & Cheese Crescent Breakfast Casserole is a new favorite. Ham and cheese baked in crescent rolls and eggs. O-M-YUM! The flavors are fantastic! This would be perfect for Christmas morning or New Year’s Day with some leftover holiday ham,

How To Make Ham & Cheese Crescent Breakfast Casserole

This Ham & Cheese Crescent Breakfast Casserole is easy to make. Start with making the ham and cheese filling. Combine ham, cheese, cream cheese, Worcestershire sauce, dijon mustard, and brown sugar. Next, open the cans of crescent rolls and cut them in half, making two triangles. Top each triangle with a heaping scoop of the ham mixture. Place crescent rolls into a baking dish. Sprinkle rolls with poppy seeds. Whisk together eggs and milk. Pour the egg mixture over the rolls and bake.

I find it easier to cut the crescent rolls in half with a pizza cutter. I like to use a small cookie scoop to scoop the ham mixture onto the crescent rolls.

You can make the ham filling ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to assemble the casserole.

To bake the casserole after freezing, thaw completely and bake as directed below. To reheat the baked casserole, thaw completely and either reheat in the microwave or covered in the oven for about 30 minutes.
