Every few months, Michael and I sign up to bring treats to our Sunday School class at church. Our turn was last month, and I decided to make this delicious-sounding Hawaiian egg bake from a Taste of Home magazine that I have. (I also made some yummy banana chip muffins from the same magazine.) Like many strata-type casseroles, this one is prepared the night before, so all you have to do in the morning is bake it for 40-45 minutes.
We enjoyed the delicious savory and sweet flavors from the ham, bacon, pineapple, and Hawaiian rolls — and french fried onions are a fun addition on top. I hope you give it a try!
Hawaiian breakfast bake with ham, bacon, and pineapple
Makes a 9×13-inch pan
By Jane and Michael’s Gourmet Extravaganza
- 12 oz. of thick-cut bacon, cooked and crumbled (about 1 cup)
- 1 cup diced ham
- 1 cup drained pineapple tidbits
- 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup (4 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese
- 8 eggs
- 2 cups of low-fat milk
- 2 tsp Worchestershire sauce
- 1 tsp ground mustard
- 12 oz. (1 package of 12 rolls) Original Hawaiian sweet rolls, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1/2 cup coarsely crushed french-fried onions
In a medium bowl, combine the crumbled bacon, diced ham, drained pineapple, and shredded cheeses. Mix well.
In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, Worchestershire sauce, and ground mustard. Whisk together until evenly mixed. Stir in the meat and cheese mixture until it is evenly distributed throughout the egg mixture. Gently fold in the cubed Hawaiian rolls until all ingredients are evenly mixed.
Transfer mixture to a greased 9×13-inch baking dish. Cover dish with foil and refrigerate overnight (or for several hours).
The next morning, place the casserole (uncovered) in the oven while it preheats to 350 degrees. When the oven reaches temperature, bake for an additional 40-45 minutes, sprinkling the crushed french-fried onions on the casserole halfway through the baking time. Casserole is done when the edges are golden brown and a knife inserted into the center of the casserole comes out clean. Let set for 5-10 minutes before cutting and serving. Enjoy!
