Easy-Bake Breakfast Casserole
8 slices bread, crusts trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 4 cups), such as Udi’s Millet-Chia bread
8 ounces sliced ham, coarsely chopped
2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese or nondairy substitute, such as Daiya
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives
1/2 cups milk or nondairy milk
Salt and pepper
2 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 2-quart baking dish. Layer the bread, ham, 2 cups cheese and 2 tablespoons chives in the dish. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Pour into the dish and top with the tomato slices in an even layer.
2. Bake the eggs until nearly set, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup cheese and 1 tablespoon chives on top and bake until golden.
