Ham Egg and Cheese Breakfast Casserole

Ham Egg and Cheese Breakfast Casserole
Before I gave birth to my son, I cooked a ham in the slow cooker. We had a delicious Sunday dinner with our neighbor, had tasty lunches the next day and the rest of the leftover ham I froze to enjoy when the baby arrived. Boy, was that the best idea ever. I had about 3 packages of ham (about 1/2lb each) and then one package of diced ham.
My cousin (whose like a second brother to me), came to visit for the weekend, a month after Ryder was born. When I have family in town I tend to cook like a crazy woman. It’s my way of showing them how much I love and appreciate them. I knew that this visit would be much different. I knew I wouldn’t have as much time to show my love through food with a one month old needing me 24-7.
Ham Egg and Cheese Breakfast Casserole
On that Sunday morning, I made my husband and cousin this Ham Egg and Cheese Breakfast Casserole. Super simple to put together. The night before I thawed one cup of the cubed ham that I had previously frozen. The next morning I used the leftover biscuits from the morning prior and diced them up, mixed in some eggs, shredded cheese, and of course the diced ham. In went the casserole into the oven and I went back to tending to my needy newborn.
This hearty breakfast comforted my favorite guys and filled my heart full of love. This Ham Egg and Cheese Breakfast Casserole made for a tasty reheated breakfast the days following. Perfect for a busy and tired new mom that still wanted to “make” my husband breakfast each morning.
