Breakfast casserole

This is my friend Maggie's recipe, well it's one that she got in her recipe collection at one of her bridal showers.  I made it for her at her party last weekend so we all had something to eat for breakfast in the morning after the long night.  This was super good! I have another breakfast casserole that I usually do that has spinach and sausage and mushrooms in it that's awesome, but this one is great especially for a pickier crowd like we have when all us girls get together.  It was very easy too....I love love LOVE it when we have people overnight and I have something easy (but tasty) to throw in the oven in the morning and serve for breakfast...we all know I am the total opposite of a morning person so morning cooking doesn't happen much!

3 cups cubed ham
1/2 lb shredded cheddar cheese (I would use 2% and you could use mexican instead of cheddar)
3 cups dry bread cubes
3 T melted butter
3 T flour
1 T dry mustard
4 eggs (if I made it at home with my ingredients I would use 4 egg whites and 2 whole eggs)
3 cups milk (I would use skim)

Grease a 9x13 baking dish with fat free Pam.  Layer the ham, bread crumbs, and cheese.  Drizzle melted butter over this.  Combine flour and mustard and sprinkle over the top.  Beat eggs and add milk, pour over the top of all other ingredients.  Refridgerate overnight.  Throw in the oven in the morning at 400 degrees for an hour. 

One tip: make sure your ham is dried with a paper towel, if there is a lot of moisture left in there it will take a while for the casserold to harden up when cooking. 

This is a picture before I put the eggs/milk on, and I didnt get in there in time to get a picture of it before it was devoured....I think that speaks for how good it was!!
