Crustless Ham Savory Bake

Crustless Ham Savory Bake ~ Self-Crusting Ham Savory Bake ~ great for leftover ham #SavoryPie #Breakfast #LeftoverHam

Lunch or light dinner ..?? This is for you - it is actually very filling so do not let the "light dinner" confuse you. Add one or two sides, a salad and a roll and you are set!

I know this recipe by heart, that many times I have made it over the years - but I am sure it was from one of my favorite foodie authors.

If there happens to be a slice left the next morning ... delicious as a cold {or heat it up} breakfast!

Crustless Ham Savory Bake

1 1/2 cups Cake flour
1/2 TB Mustard Powder
1/2 t Salt
4 TB Butter, softened
3 cups Milk
3 Extra-Large Eggs
1 Small Onion, chopped finely
1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese, grated
300g Cooked Ham, sliced or diced {I use the sliced found at the delis and slice it into smaller pieces}
Handful finely chopped Parsley

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - Spray a 20 x 30cm oven dish with Spray 'N Cook.
2.) Sift together the Cake Flour, Mustard Powder and Salt in a large mixing bowl - add the Butter and mix until combined {it will look a bit crumbly}
3.) Beat the Milk and Eggs together - add to the Flour mixture - stir well.
4.) Add the Onion, Cheddar and Ham to the mixture - mix until well combined - transfer to the prepared oven dish - sprinkle the Parsley on top.
5.) Bake for 1 hour or until puffed and golden brown {once out of the oven the puff will go down a little}

Remove the dish from the oven - let it rest for 5 minutes - slice and serve!

  15. Leslie:
    I'm always looking for make ahead breakfasts for overnight guests. Do you think this would work to assemble, freeze, thaw in fridge, then bake in the morning?
