Ham & Cheese Breakfast Casserole

This casserole was served at my Nashville baby shower! It was so good, I requested the recipe and made it for the teachers at our Back 2 School breakfast. Word of advice, serve it hot because it's not as good warmed up!

18 slices white bread, cubed
8 oz cooked ham, cubed (can use Pampered Chef chopper or buy it cubed)
2 c shredded Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 c diced Swiss cheese
6 eggs
3 1/2 c milk
1/2 tsp onion powder
2 c crushed cornflakes
1/2 c butter, melted

Lightly grease a 8x13 baking dish. Line the bottom of the dish with half the bread cubes. Sprinkle with ham, Cheddar & Swiss cheese. Top with remaining bread. In a bowl, beat together the eggs, milk & onion powder. Pour evenly over bread. Cover & refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 375. In a small bowl, blend the crushed cornflakes and melted butter. Spread evenly over casserole. Bake 40 minutes until bubbly and golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

You might want to add a little salt & pepper to taste.
