This casserole is easy to prepare, especially if you purchase diced ham from your supermarket. Gruyère is a type of Swiss cheese. Its sweet nuttiness enhances this dish, though you can substitute Edam, Gouda, or even cheddar cheese.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine milk, green onions, egg substitute, mustard, and pepper in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add bread cubes and ham; stir well to combine. Pour into a 2-quart baking pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 3

Uncover dish, and bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with bacon. Bake an additional 15 minutes or until bread mixture is set and cheese is bubbly.

Followed this recipe exact and it was fantastic! I made it for dinner. No one could believe it was a low calorie meal. I will definitely make it again.

Made this for New Year's Day so I didn't have to cook first thing in the morning. Loved how easy it was to make ahead of time and it was Yummy! I added a little more Dijon mustard, because I love it, otherwise stuck to recipe. It was definitely a crowd pleaser; so much so that we are making it a New Year's Day tradition!

There didn't seem to be enough milk because it just tasted like damp bread rather than the normal casserole consistancy. I wonder if it's because sourdough is so crisp and has so much crust that maybe it is very dependent on the type of loaf you choose. Sounded alot better than it tasted. Would not make again.

Excellent recipe. Used turkey ham, turkey bacon and whole wheat bread because it's what I had in the house. Delicious.

This was pretty good. Light and fluffy, and of course the ham, bacon and gruyere are delicous. But once you eat the top containing those I felt like it could use something more. Maybe add a little more pepper next time.
