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 swiss 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.
