Overnight Southern Biscuit, Ham and Egg Bake
- 10.6 ounces about 2 cups diced ham
- 8 biscuits cooked, cooled, and cubed (about 8 cups total)*
- 2 cups 8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/3 cup chopped scallions
- 1 jar 4 ounces diced pimientos, drained
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- 8 large eggs
- 2 cups whole milk
- Pinch of grated nutmeg
- Fresh herbs for garnish
- Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
- In a large bowl, stir together ham, cubed biscuits, cheese, scallions, pimientos, ½ teaspoon of salt, and ¼ teaspoon of pepper. Transfer to the prepared baking dish.
- In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, nutmeg, remaining ½ teaspoon of salt and remaining ¼ teaspoon of pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the biscuit mixture. Use your hands or a spoon to gently combine the biscuits with the eggs to make sure that everything is nicely coated. You want the biscuits to absorb the liquid.
- Cover casserole and refrigerate for at least one hour (or up to overnight).
- Before baking, allow the casserole to sit on the counter and come to room temperature for about 20 minutes while you preheat the oven.
- If the casserole has been sitting overnight, I like to give everything a gentle stir in the dish to make sure that all of the biscuits are coated with the egg mixture before it goes in the oven.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C.
- Bake, uncovered, for 45-50 minutes (until eggs are set and top is golden brown). Garnish with fresh herbs just before serving.

What a pretty egg bake! I’m always looking for new brunch recipes, especially ones that can be ready in no time. This sure looks like a crowd pleaser! Love the ham in here!
Thanks so much, Gayle! I love brunch recipes, and you can’t go wrong with this combination of ingredients!
You know I can never say no to a good egg recipe. This looks amazing Blair!
I totally agree, Megan! Thank you!
This looks amazingly delicious!
Thanks, Sarah! I hope that you get to try it! 🙂
Ooh this looks so good! I’ll have to make some biscuits to try this as Jesse would LOVE it! Or I wonder what it’d be like with cornbread! Hmmm!
Cornbread would be delicious too, Kristy! 🙂
I saw Southern and was immediately excited. This sounds so good, and I like one of the commenters ideas about cornbread as well. I love the fact that you can get this ready the night before, it really saves time in the AM.
I’d like to try it in a slow cooker
That’s a great idea, Madeleine! Let me know if you give it a try. I haven’t done it that way, so I don’t know how long it will take or how it compares to the original recipe. 🙂
