How to Make a Ham and Brie Breakfast Casserole

What makes the ham and cheese pull apart bread super easy is that it is made with frozen dough and you can make it the night before.

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

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

Assemble. Spray the casserole dish with cooking spray. Put 2/3 of the dough pieces on the bottom in a single layer.

Spread ham cubes on top. Then the slices of brie cubes. Place the last of the dough cubes around the top.

Put herbs. Sprinkle with your favorite herbs, I like using dried dill or fresh thyme. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let the dough rise for 30 minutes.

Bake the breakfast casserole. Preheat oven to 325º F while rising. Cover with foil, and bake for 20 minutes covered.

Remove the foil carefully and bake for another 15 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and the bread is golden brown. Top with scallions and serve warm.

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. Then bake as directed above.

Recipe Variations

  • Instead of ham and brie, try bacon and cheddar for the bread casserole.
  • Use sausage and gruyere for a different flavor.
  • Top with chopped herbs or green onion for color.
  • Add some chopped vegetables to the casserole for a healthier option.
  • Use a different type of bread, such as sourdough or French bread.
  • Spread a layer of Dijon mustard on the bread for a little bit of tang.

How to Serve Ham and Brie Bread Casserole

Serve slices of bread cubes hot, garnished with fresh herbs. It is delicious on its own, but you could also serve it with a side of fruit or a green salad. It is also best served with a hot cup of coffee or tea.
