This is a great one to get ready when you have a busy morning, just pop it in the oven & get on with your chores. Both DH & I enjoyed this, I only used a little butter on top & it was still fine. I only used one type of cheese, a bitey vintage and I think that's the key to this, you must use a cheese with some bite otherwise it wouldn't taste as good. Made for ZWT 4.
Karen, I made a double batch of this recipe for girls weekend and it was devoured! I did add a little crumbled sausage on one layer and a few chopped onions, but other wise made as written. This was TERRIFIC! Don't skip the corn flakes, as they really lend a great crunch, though I only had to use about 1/2 the amount of cornflakes as the casserole was full. :) This will be made and enjoyed many more times. Thanks for posting!
This was delicious, easy to make too! Most of the work gets done the night before so in the morning you just throw the topping on and bake. It was a really good blend of saltiness from the ham, cheesy and creamy and the cornflakes gave it a nice crunch. I did have to make some substitutions due to my family's health concerns. I used wheat bread, canadian bacon, low fat cheeses, 1/2cup of Eggbeaters and skim milk. I decreased the cornflakes to 1 cup and used light margarine. Sounds like a lot,but really only minor changes from the original ingredients. If anyone else wants to make this but are concerned about the nutritional fact...the substitutions I used cut the calories down to 300, the saturated fat down to 3g and the total fat down to 8g. Cholesterol was lowered to 34mg(!)and sodium to 985. Carbs was also lowered to 28g. Who says you have to sacrifice the good stuff to eat healthier? Thanks for posting!
