Ham and Cheese Breakfast Bake

Ham, Cheese, Egg, & Potatoes

I was searching for recipes that used ham, cheese, potatoes, and eggs and really couldn't find anything. Some used ham and potatoes, some used ham and eggs; not potatoes and eggs all at once. So, I decided to come up with something myself.

I'll admit that there is probably a recipe similar to this out there, but I couldn't find it.

  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese (this is could use more or less)
  • 2 Whole Eggs
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • Dash of Milk
  • 8 oz. Package of diced ham
  • 3-5 Potatoes (diced and cooked...not fully cooked, but just cooked, like for potato salad)

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. Spray an 8x11" baking dish with cooking spray
Building the Dish:
  1. Put potatoes in bottom of baking dish
  2. Spread ham over top of potatoes
  3. Sprinkle a light layer of cheese over that.
  4. In a separate bowl, scramble together eggs, egg whites, and milk. Add pepper, if desired.
  5. Pour evenly over potatoes, cheese, and ham.
  6. Top with more cheese.
  1. Cover top with aluminum foil
  2. Bake covered for 30 minutes
  3. Remove foil and bake for another 15 minutes
  4. Remove from oven and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  5. Slice and enjoy!
  6. Makes about 8 servings.
I made this on Sunday, but waited to post the recipe because I wanted to see how well this dish reheated in the microwave. I have to say that it didn't taste any different than it did freshly baked. I heated it for 1 minute and it was heated through and still very tasty!


  1. A nice big treat for breakfast, nice idea, I will try it :)
