Ingredients Needed

French bread – If you don’t have french bread on hand, you can also use Italian bread.

Potatoes – Diced potatoes can be swapped out for hash browns or tater tots.

Diced ham – You can also use Canadian bacon for this recipe, or switch it out for breakfast sausage or any breakfast meat.

Spinach – I personally recommend fresh spinach for this recipe, but you can use frozen if necessary.

Green onions – No green onion? Swap for yellow or white onions.

Garlic powder – Swap out for garlic flakes or garlic salt as needed.

Dry mustard – Mustard seeds and yellow mustard are both good substitutes for dry mustard.

Heavy cream – Half and half and butter can be combined into a replacement if needed.

Sharp cheddar cheese – You can use any cheese that you like for this recipe.

Pantry staples – Large eggs, milk, salt, black pepper.

What Should I Serve My Breakfast Bundt Cake With? 

If I’m serving my bundt cake casserole with some form of bacon, egg dishes, or sausage and a side of orange juice.

I usually try to pair it with something sweet as well, like pancakes with maple syrup or coffee cake with butter and brown sugar drizzle.

Since this recipe calls for plenty of ham, you can also forego any other type of meat and combine it with eggs and fruit, which is a great way to offer some lighter options.

Can I Save My Leftovers From This Recipe? 

Yes, leftovers from this breakfast casserole can be placed in an airtight container or covered tightly with plastic wrap and stored in the fridge for 2-3 days after you bake it.

This recipe is one of the best easy breakfast recipes for pulling out the next morning, especially if you’re in a hurry because you can just throw it back in the oven at the same temperature to reheat.

Tips for No Leftovers

  • For a more buttery flavor, you can use cooked biscuit dough in place of french bread.
  • Want to add more veggies to your meals? Try throwing in some tomatoes, spinach, and bell peppers (green peppers are my personal favorite for this recipe).
  • No bundt pan? Use a casserole dish or loaf pan instead. Be sure to adjust the cooking time and frequently check on your dish, to make sure you’re not undercooking or overcooking.
  • Allowing your breakfast casserole to cool for 20 – 25 minutes before trying to remove it from the pan is going to give you the best results.
  • Once you’ve done this, you can flip it onto a serving tray, and let it cool down to room temperature for the perfect bundt pan shape.
  • A sweet bundt cake can be made by using Hawaiian sweet rolls – I recommend adding in a little orange zest to this mixture as well.
