I have to admit, I of course made some small adjustments to her recipe. One change was the cheese. She suggest using Gouda. However, I had just stopped by Fair Oaks Farms in Northwestern Indiana and got some butterkase cheese. I just had to use it in this casserole.
I grated it all up.
Then make about two cups of white sauce. I took four tablespoons of butter, melted it down in a sauce pan and added four tablespoons of flour and combined into a rue. Cook for about one minute. Slowly add 2 cups of milk and whisk together. I then added salt and pepper to taste and 1/2 teaspoon of dried mustard.
Pour half the white sauce in the bottom of an 8 x 8 pan.
Layer four slices of bread on top.
Layer sliced ham on top of the bread. I used a whole 10 ounce package. Use half on the first layer of bread.
Then layer half of the cheese on top of the ham. Repeat bread, ham and cheese again.
Pour the remainder of the sauce over top of the second layer of cheese.
Looks yummy doesn’t it?
Bake for 30 minutes on 400 degrees. Right before it is done baking, fry up six eggs. Pull the casserole out of the oven and cut into six pieces. Place one fried egg on top of each piece. Top with a slice of swiss cheese and bake for a few more minutes to melt cheese.
Let sit for about five minutes before serving.
Enjoy the cheesy goodness. We loved it!
