How to Make Cheesy Ham and Egg Crescent Roll Bake

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly spray a 9×13 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Just a light mist is needed. (A 9×11 baking dish will also work.)

Unroll your crescent roll dough. Press it into the bottom and approximately 1/2 inch up the sides of the baking dish. Crimp together the seams of the rolls as best you can.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and half and half until combined. You can use milk in place of the half and half, but the half and half will give you a richer flavor.

Whisk in garlic powder, ground black pepper, and salt just until combined.

Add in chopped ham, chopped spinach, 1/4 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese, and 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese. Stir to combine.

Pour egg mixture over the top of the crescent roll dough.

You may notice that some of the ham or spinach has clumped together. Use a spatula to evenly spread out the fillings.

Sprinkle the remaining 3/4 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese and 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese over the top of the egg filling.

Bake for 20-23 minutes, or until the edges start to turn golden brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Carefully remove the baking dish to a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes. Top with chopped, fresh cilantro, if desired.

Cut into pieces, and serve.

Immediately store leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator.

Tips for Making Ham and Cheese Egg Crescent Roll Casserole

  • Don’t like mushrooms? Leave them out or substitute 1/2 cup sautéed, chopped bell pepper.
  • You can use mozzarella cheese in place of the Monterey jack cheese.
  • Don’t have or like cilantro? Try topping the egg bake with green onion instead.
  • If the cheese is browning too quickly, cover with aluminum foil for the remainder of the bake time.
