Ham & Cheese Croissant Bake

Here's a yummy little dish to warm you right up! It is from my most recent Southern Living (I adore that magazine)!

This is such a great recipe because you make it ahead AND you can have it for breakfast or dinner!!

Get everything ready....croissants, ham, cheese, eggs, half-and-half, dry mustard (ok, so I didn't actually have this), honey, salt, pepper, nutmeg.

First, cut the croissants and place them in the bottom of a greased deep-dish pie plate (10 inch).
I got this little pumpkin one at Kohl's! Top with the chopped ham and grated Swiss cheese.
Next, whisk the eggs, half-and-half, dry mustard, honey, salt, pepper, and nutmeg in a large bowl.

Pour the egg mixture in to the pie plate. Make sure it covers all of the croissants.
Cover tightly and chill for 8 to 24 hours.
~The next morning you'll be loving yourself for putting this together!!~Bake this at 325 degrees, covered, for 35 minutes. After that, uncover and bake an additional 25-30 minutes. Let it stand 10 minutes before serving!!

With some fresh fruit and hash browns, this can't be beat ANY time of the day. Hope you enjoy!

Hope everyone has a wonderful, wonderful weekend!!
