Well, the best ham and cheese casserole is here and you’re going to love it! Let me introduce the Ham & Brie Pull-Apart made from frozen bread dough.

Ham Brie Breakfast Casserole

The Ease of Baking with Frozen Dough

The easy make-ahead recipe I’m sharing with you is made with Bridgford Parkerhouse Style frozen rolls.

The frozen rolls are ideal for pull-apart dishes, like this ham and brie recipe or my overnight French toast casserole recipe.

Do you remember the tasty Pumpkin Spice Bread Twist that I made with Bridgford’s Ready-Dough? Or the 5 minute quick & easy Bridgford’s Monkey Bread?

As you can see, we rely on Bridgford Food’s Ready-Dough and Parkerhouse Style rolls throughout the year.

What is a Pull-Apart?

This pull-apart is really similar to strata, a breakfast dish using bread and eggs as the base. The ham & brie pull-apart has fresh dough cubes, instead of bread and eggs. But, they both share the make-ahead idea.

How to Make a Ham & Brie Casserole

What makes the ham & brie pull-apart super easy is that it is made with frozen dough and you can make it the night before:

After dinner, pull your Bridgford Parkerhouse frozen rolls out of the freezer and let thaw on the countertop for 1-2 hours.

Cut rolls into 4 pieces, and ham and brie into dice-sized cubes.

Layer it to the casserole dish, cover, and refrigerate overnight.

Then bake it in the morning. How easy is that?

Although the recipe uses ham & brie, you can sub them really easily. How about bacon and cheddar, or sausage and gruyere?

The possibilities are endless. Whatever you pair with the pull-apart bread, top them with herbs or chopped green onion for a splash of color.

Make Holiday Prep Easier

The holidays, like Christmas, Easter, or Thanksgiving, can be hectic. Make this holiday morning easy! Pull this Ham & Brie Pull-Apart dish out of your fridge and pop it in the oven.

In less than 45 minutes, you’ll be serving up a tasty, hearty meal to start off the day.


Do I need to thaw the frozen rolls?

Yes, you will need to let them thaw for 1-2 hours before cutting them. Otherwise, they will be too frozen to cut into pieces.

Can I make this casserole right away?

It does. not need to be refrigerated overnight. As long as you let the frozen dough rolls thaw, you can prepare the ham and cheese casserole and bake it right away.

  • Casserole dish


  • 1 25 oz. package Bridgford Parkerhouse Style Rolls
  • 1 lb. Ham, precooked, cut into dice-sized cubes
  • 1 lb. Brie, cut into dice-sized cubes (garlic & herb adds flavor)
  • 1/4 cup scallions, green part only, minced
  • cooking oil spray


  • Follow package directions for thawing. While rolls are still cold, cut each into 4 pieces. Sharp kitchen shears work best for cutting the dough.
  • Spray a 13" x 9" casserole dish with cooking spray. Lay 2/3 of dough pieces in the bottom of it, in a single layer. Spread ham cubes on top. Then the brie cubes. Place the last of the dough cubes around the top. Sprinkle with your favorite herbs, I like using dried dill or fresh thyme. (If making ahead, skip to step 3). Cover losely with plastic wrap and let dough rise for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 325º F while rising.
  • To make ahead: Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, pull out the baking dish, and let it come to room temperature. Preheat oven to 325º F.
  • Cover with foil, and bake for 20 minutes covered. Carefully remove foil and bake another 15 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and the bread is golden. Top with scallions and serve warm.
