Ham, Broccoli and Cheese Casserole

ham and cheese casserole

Ingredients:

1/2 cup broccoli florets

3 slices whole wheat bread, cubed

1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano, drained

8 slices deli honey ham, shredded

1/4 cup shredded pepper jack cheese

4 eggs

1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder salt and ground black pepper to taste

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch square casserole dish.

Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add broccoli, cover, and steam until tender, 2 to 4 minutes.

Mix steamed broccoli, bread cubes, diced tomatoes, ham, and pepper jack cheese together in a large bowl.

Beat eggs, cream, garlic powder, salt, and pepper together in a separate bowl; stir into broccoli mixture. Pour mixture into the prepared casserole dish.

Bake in the preheated oven until eggs are set in the middle, about 35 minutes. Allow to cool for 3 to 5 minutes before cutting.
