Ham, Egg, and Cheese Casserole (Instant Pot or Oven!)

At the bottom of this post for Ham, Egg and Cheese Casserole are instructions on how to make this in an oven and traditional slow cooker (crock pot) as well. Ham, Egg, and Cheese Casserole (Instant Pot or Oven!)

Hey friends! Today I’m sharing a recipe from my second book, Come Home To Supper (page 155). This is a favorite for a protein rich supper, weekend brunch, or breakfast for a group over the holidays or any celebration – Christmas and Thanksgiving morning will be here before you know it!.

I’m using my Instant Pot for this, however it is a slow cooker or oven recipe as well. Instructions for the different cooking methods are in the printable recipe at the bottom of this post.  I’ve had tons of people ask me for Instant Pot recipes since I first mentioned having one.

Ingredients for Ham, Egg, Cheese Casserole

Ham, Egg, and Cheese Casserole (Instant Pot or Oven!)

You’ll need:

  • Onion*
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Frozen Cubed Hash Browns
  • Chopped ham or meat of your choice
  •  Milk
  • Eggs
  • Salt and Pepper

*You can chop the onions yourself and shred the cheese if you like but I just love buying these frozen chopped onions for a great short cut on the days when I just want to make my life a tiny bit easier. 

Special Note: This recipe is wonderful with crumbled turkey breakfast sausage. I recommend Jenn-O brand because that is our favorite.

Ham, Eggs and Cheese Casserole Recipe

  • Layer 1/3 of potatoes, 1/3 of onions, 1/3 of ham, and 1/3 of cheese in your insert. Repeat this two more times until it is all used up.
  • Beat eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together and pour over layers.

Insta Pot Instructions

The instant pot has several settings. As I said before, I’m just tossing all this in and using the slow cooker setting.

I press “Slow Cooker” and then press “Adjust” until it goes to the “less” light on the display screen.

I now have it slow cooking on low. From there I use the plus or minus sign to move the time up to seven hours. If you want to cook this on high, just press “slow cooker” and it is automatically on high. Then adjust your time to anywhere between 3-4 hours.

You could probably adapt this recipe to be a pressure cooked one but I usually reserve pressure cooking in my instant pot for roasts, chickens, stews, dried beans, boiled eggs, and potatoes.

Duo Chicken & Cheese Enchiladas — The Skinny Fork by Gordon Ramsay

Duo Chicken & Cheese Enchiladas — The Skinny Fork

Generally when I make enchiladas, I make them naked. Whether stuffed into a zucchini or wrapped in greens of some sort. This time around I decided to go with the real deal. These Duo Chicken & Cheese Enchiladas are made with not one sauce, but two! Giving you a variety of flavors all in one enchilada.

Green sauce down one side, red sauce down the other, and all of them being loaded with chicken and pepper jack cheese. They are super quick and easy to make and are one of my favorite Tex-mex dinners for busy weeknights!

Skinny Beer Cheese Apple Soup (Instant Pot) — The Skinny Fork by Gordon Ramsay

Skinny Beer Cheese Apple Soup (Instant Pot) — The Skinny Fork

As we get closer to my all time favorite month of October, I naturally start to gravitate towards beer-centric recipes. I guess it has something to do with Oktoberfest, that or there tends to be more pumpkin spice beers readily available, and those are super fun to play with in the kitchen.

In fact, an ‘October’ themed beer is what I used in this Skinny Beer Cheese Apple Soup! Don’t let the ‘skinny’ title of this soup fool you, it tastes AMAZING. Apples and cheese go together like peas and carrots, throw some beer in there too and you’ve got it made.
