Everyone needs an easy, overnight breakfast dish. One that you can put in the fridge overnight, and pop into the oven in the morning. Well, it’s here and you’re going to love it! Let me introduce the ham & brie pull-apart to you.
With tasty ham cubes, gooey brie, and chunks of soft bread, this pull-apart dish is perfect for Christmas morning. Or Saturday morning, or even Sunday brunch…well, you get the idea. It’s perfect at any time! Serve it alone for breakfast or brunch, or with a salad for lunch or dinner.
The easy make-ahead recipe I’m sharing with you is made with Bridgford Parkerhouse Style frozen rolls. The frozen rolls are ideal for pull-apart dishes, like this ham & brie one.
As you can see, we rely on Bridgford Food’s Ready-Dough and Parkerhouse Style rolls throughout the year.
Make Ham & Brie Ahead
This pull-apart is really similar to a strata, a breakfast dish using bread and eggs as the base. The ham & brie pull-apart has fresh dough cubes, instead of bread and eggs. But, they both share the make ahead idea.
What makes the ham & brie pull-apart super easy that you can make it the night before:
- After dinner, pull your Bridgford Parkerhouse frozen rolls out of the freezer and let thaw on the countertop for 1-2 hours.
- Cut rolls into 4 pieces, and ham and brie into dice-sized cubes.
- Layer it your casserole dish, cover, and refrigerate overnight.
Then bake it in the morning. How easy is that?
Here’s the Recipe
Ham & Brie Pull-Apart
This is an easy, overnight dish. You can prepare it ahead of time, keep it in the fridge overnight, and bake it in the morning.
- 1 25 oz. package Bridgford Parkerhouse Style Rolls
- 1 lb. Ham, precooked, cut into dice-sized cubes
- 1 lb. Brie, cut into dice-sized cubes (garlic & herb adds flavor)
- 1/4 cup scallions, green part only, minced
- cooking oil spray
Follow package directions for thawing. While rolls are still cold, cut each into 4 pieces. Sharp kitchen shears work best for cutting the dough.
Spray a 13" x 9" casserole dish with cooking spray. Lay 2/3 of dough pieces in the bottom of it, in a single layer. Spread ham cubes on top. Then the brie cubes. Place the last of the dough cubes around the top. Sprinkle with your favorite herbs, I like using dried dill or fresh thyme. (If making ahead, skip to step 3). Cover losely with plastic wrap and let dough rise for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 325º F while rising.
To make ahead: Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, pull out the baking dish, and let it come to room temperature. Preheat oven to 325º F.
Cover with foil, and bake for 20 minutes covered. Carefully remove foil and bake another 15 minutes, until the cheese is bubbly and the bread is golden. Top with scallions and serve warm.
Although the recipe uses ham & brie, you can sub them really easily. How about bacon and cheddar, or sausage and gruyere? The possibilities are endless. Whatever you pair with the pull-apart bread, top them with herbs or chopped green onion for a splash of color.
