Happy Hearts And Tummies: Bundt Breakfast Bake

I don’t think I’ve ever come across a bundt breakfast casserole dish before. I’m glad that I found this recipe 🙂

Check out what my pals over at Me Lady Cooks had to say about this recipe:

Breakfast bundts can also be made ahead and refrigerated, then baked the next morning.  I often bake an egg bake the night before and microwave it for future breakfasts.  Then you don’t need both eyes open to prepare your breakfast in the morning!  I can’t imagine bouncing out of bed to create this meal in the morning.  If you have morning energy, you go!  I don’t want to hear about it.

Haha! Ok, Me Lady cooks, I won’t tell you about my morning energy. My husband hates hearing about it, too.



1 heaping cup ham; diced in 3/4″ cubes

2 cups spinach; chopped

1/2 teaspoon Morton salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or minced garlic

large pinch McCormick cayenne

2 cups shredded hash browns (I used frozen)

8 cups bread; diced in 3/4″ cubes

1/4 cup green onions; chopped

12 large eggs (I used 8 jumbo eggs)

2 cups milk

1 cup heavy cream

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon dry mustard

2 cups shredded cheese (I used Swiss and cheddar)


Preheat oven to 400° F. Spray bundt pan heavily with cooking spray or grease very well with shortening.
Sauté spinach in a drizzle of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat until wilted. Season with salt, pepper and minced or granulated garlic. Set aside for several minutes to cool.

In same skillet fry the hash browns in a drizzle of oil until lightly browned and beginning to crisp up. Salt and pepper to taste. Set aside to cool.

In the greased bundt pan layer half of the diced bread. Layer diced ham, green onions, spinach, hash browns and one cup of shredded cheese. Cover with remaining bread cubes.

In a bowl whisk the eggs, milk, cream, salt, pepper, ground mustard and cayenne until well mixed. Pour over contents of bundt pan, making sure the top is thoroughly wet. Press down lightly with your fingers to settle contents in the egg mixture. Let stand on counter for 30 minutes to soak up the liquid.

Layer with final cup of cheese and bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes or until knife inserted in center shows eggs have set and are not runny.





Quick Tip: I like to eat this breakfast bundt with a side of hashbrowns and lots of hot sauce.

Thank you to Me Lady Cooks for this great recipe.

Looks delish but was wondering if you could treat it like a strata and leave it in the refrigerator overnight before baking.
