Saturday Share: Easy Brunch Casserole

On Sundays, we do brunch after church. Tomorrow is Father's Day which is perfect for a nice brunch for Dad and the rest of the family and friends.

The perfect brunch in my opinion is a chilled jug of orange juice, a carafe of piping hot coffee (Dunkin' Donuts Coffee is our favorite), a large chilled bowl of mixed fruit and a delicious entree like Ham, Bacon, and Swiss Brunch Casserole which is the star of the meal.

This casserole is easy to make since many of the ingredients can be prepared the night before.

Here's the complete list of ingredients, followed by the recipe and how I separate the ingredients into the day before prep and then the baking day prep which sounds far more complicated than it is.

1/2 cup butter
2 cups Original Bisquick® mix
2 cups milk
8 eggs
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
3 cups cooked cubed ham
4-6 slices of bacon--fried, drained, and crumbled
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
Dash ground black pepper

Ham, Bacon, and Swiss Brunch Casserole

Ingredients to Prep the Night Before

2 eggs beaten well with 1 cup milk stirred in. Cover and store in fridge.
3 cups of cubed ham, covered and stored in fridge.
4-6 slices of bacon, fried, drained, crumbled, and stored in fridge.
Grate or shred 4 ounces of Swiss cheese and store in fridge.
Grate or shred 9 ounces of cheddar cheese and store in fridge.

Final Ingredients for Putting it Together

1 stick of butter (1/2 cup)
2 cups Original Bisquick® mix
1 cup milk
6 eggs, beaten

1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
Dash ground black pepper


Heat oven to 375°F.

Spray 13x9-inch rectangular (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Place the stick of butter in dish and place dish in oven until butter is melted, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and place on heat-proof surface. You'll be adding other ingredients to this dish.

In medium bowl, add 2 cups of Bisquick to the refrigerated mixture of 1 cup of milk and 2 beaten eggs. Mix together until only tiny lumps remain. Pour evenly over the melted butter in the baking dish.

Now, layer the grated Swiss cheese, ham, bacon, and grated Cheddar cheese over the mixture in the casserole dish.

Next, in a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of milk, 6 eggs, and the salt, mustard, and black pepper. Pour over casserole.

Bake uncovered for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes to allow it to set up before serving.

Serves 6-8 hearty appetites with each serving having approximately 460 calories and 19 grams of carbohydrates.

Takeaway Truth

Fix brunch for the men in your life tomorrow. Happy Father's Day.
