"No Crust" Ham and Cheese Souffle

Perfect for breakfast, brunch...or even dinner! 

This recipe was given to me by my dear friend, Mary, when we lived in Michigan.  I made some everlasting friendships while there and will never forget what a special time it was in my life, and my family's lives too.

My kids were young, we were all involved in PTA, special school programs, game nights, our church and so much more!   That time and those people remain so dear to me...they are a part of my heart forever.

This "no crust"  casserole is the perfect holiday breakfast or brunch dish.  Serve it with a fruit salad, bagels, toast, English Muffins or your favorite muffin and you have the perfect meal for company or holidays...or most importantly, your family!


14-16 slices of white bread (remove crust & cut the remaining bread into cubes)
1 lb. cubed ham (great with leftover ham or ham slices)
1 lb. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1 1/2 lb. Swiss cheese, grated
6 eggs, beaten
3 cups milk
1/2 tsp. onion salt
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
Dash of paprika
3 cups crushed cornflakes*
1/2 cup melted butter*

Prepare a 9x13" glass baking dish. (I spray with Pam)

Line the bottom of the dish with half the bread cubes. Sprinkle with ham, Cheddar cheese, and Swiss cheese, and top with remaining bread.

In a bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, and onion salt, dry mustard and paprika.
Pour evenly over bread.  Cover, and refrigerate overnight.

*Next morning, before baking:

Preheat oven to 375'F.

Combine crushed cornflakes & butter for topping.  Spread evenly over casserole.

Bake at 375'F. for 40-50 minutes.  Let stand a few minutes before serving.
