HOW DO YOU MAKE HAM & CHEESE EGG BAKE?

WHAT KIND OF HAM DO YOU USE?
Feel free to use any kind of ham you have in your fridge, from deli ham to ham steak to leftover Easter ham. As long as it’s chopped into bite sized pieces, it will work well in this recipe.
CAN YOU USE HEAVY CREAM?
Yes, you can feel free to substitute heavy cream or half and half for the milk. Doing so will produce a richer result. Just keep in mind that there’s already a great deal of richness from the croissants, eggs, and Swiss cheese.
HOW DO YOU STORE LEFTOVERS?
Leftovers can be stored, covered, in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. You can store them right in the pan (covered with aluminum foil) or in an airtight food storage container.
HOW DO YOU REHEAT LEFTOVERS?
The best way to reheat this recipe is in the oven or toaster oven, both of which allow the croissants to crisp up a bit. However, this dish will also reheat well in the microwave.
