Ham Croissant Breakfast Casserole Recipe

February 15 , 2015 by: Jessica Pinney Breakfast, Pork

My mom used to make this ham and cheese croissant breakfast casserole for special occasions like sleepovers or Christmas morning. I try to make it the morning after whenever I bake ham, which is only a few times per year so it is still a special treat. I once made it for brunch with a group of friends a few years ago. A vegetarian had a piece and said I changed his life.

But it wasn’t me, it was this magical casserole.


Ham Croissant Breakfast Casserole Recipe

  • Author:


About 6 mini or 3 regular size croissants

10 ounces cooked bone-in ham cut in to bitesize chunks (I usually use the leftovers the night after baking a ham)

6 oz of cheese, shredded ( I recommend cheddar, but you could use something like swizz instead)

6 Eggs

1 cup of half & half

1 tablespoon dry ground mustard

2 tablespoons honey

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Cut or tear croissants into halves or thirds, depending on size. Place the croissant pieces inside a pie plate.

Top with the chunks of ham and the cheese.

Put the eggs, half & half, dry mustard, honey, salt, and pepper into a bowl and whisk together until well blended.

Pour the egg  mixture over the croissants and ham. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, preheat your oven to 325°. Cover with foil and bake 35 minutes. Then remove cover and bake an additional 30 minutes.

Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

  • […] Ham Croissant Breakfast Casserole: Buttery croissants, egg, ham and cheese — sounds like a breakfast sandwich, doesn’t it? This is done overnight casserole style, though, with an egg mixture poured over the croissants that soak it up all night before baking. […]

  • The recipe does not state what size pan to use (or did I miss it?)…most breakfast casseroles are prepared in a 9X13–but I am uncertain whether these ingredients will actually fill a 9X13 pan?

  • I think you just missed it in the first line of the directions. It’s actually made in a standard pie plate. This recipe will be too small to fill a 9×13.

  • How many servings will this recipe yield?

  • Looks like it would be perfect for 4 people with no leftovers.

  • This sounds wonderful! If we haven’t baked a ham, what other type of ham would you suggest using in this?
