Storage

This casserole is great for reheating and storing! You can either cut it up and wrap it into individual servings or you can store it right in the baking dish in the fridge for up to 5 days. To reheat individual portions wrap the casserole in a slightly damp paper towel and microwave for 30-second increments until warmed through. You can reheat the whole casserole at once in the oven on 300.

Recipe FAQs

Is This Farmer’s Breakfast Casserole recipe gluten-free?

It certainly is! This recipe calls for gluten-free Ore-Ida shredded hash browns. Evaporated milk is inherently gluten-free. Also, make sure the ham you buy is gluten-free by reading the label.

Can you use regular milk instead of evaporated milk in this Ham and Egg Casserole?

Yes, you can – BUT it’s not going to have the same texture or smoothness that you’ll get by using evaporated milk. If you do use regular milk you’ll want to go with whole or 2%.

Can you use fresh potatoes for the frozen hash browns?

Fresh potatoes begin to oxidize as soon as they are grated. This gives an unappetizing grey tint to your casserole. If you are planning to make this ahead of time and leave it in your fridge for any length of time it’s best to use frozen hashbrowns.

    There is nothing I love better than a breakfast casserole. It is the ultimate comfort food. I usually make mine with sausage so I love how this recipe changed things up and used ham instead.
