Ham is one of the best-loved Easter dinners. I totally get it too, hams are affordable and large enough to feed families of all sizes. This weekend, my parents drove to town from Chicago and my mom and I spent Sunday connecting in the kitchen. We were only cooking for four but like every holiday, the menu was immense. We made crab legs, ham, mashed potatoes, coleslaw, corn casserole and brussel sprout salad. That being said, we had a lot of leftovers and a ton of ham.
My original plan was to wake up Easter Sunday and make a breakfast casserole but thanks to a late night of drinking and baking (yes, I was baking until 2:30am) it never happened. Since I had all of the ingredients and I was up early this morning sending my parents off to Chicago, I decided to whip up a breakfast casserole using some of the leftover ham. I am not huge fan of leftovers, but I am totally down for using leftovers to create new dishes.
This casserole is quick and convenient. It’s an awesome dish to store in your fridge for the week and reheat for an easy breakfast. My favorite part about casseroles is that you can throw whatever you want in them and they still are guaranteed to be tasty. Next time I think I will mix in some veggies!
