Ham and Cheese Croissant Casserole Makes Mornings Easy


Preparing breakfast just got easier with this Ham and Cheese Croissant Casserole. Perfect for summer mornings, family visits or potluck season, this casserole is a lifesaver. It’s a go-to, prep-ahead recipe that saves you from spending mornings over the stove while still ensuring everyone gets fed. The ingredients are simple and only take about 15 minutes to assemble. Put it together the night before and refrigerate until morning. Then, enjoy quality time with your family while the oven does the work for you.

Easy Peasy Pleasy Tips

  • With this casserole, you must prepare it ahead of time. It needs time to soak in the egg mixture.
  • I could only find mini croissants in the bakery section. I used 3 minis in place of 1 large. So, a total of 9 mini croissants for this recipe.
  • I never see shredded Swiss cheese where I shop, so I purchased a block of Swiss cheese and shredded it up myself.
  • You can replace the half-and-half with half a cup of milk and a half a cup of heavy cream.
  • The casserole will puff up beautifully and after resting for 10 minutes, will set.
