Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole

I wanted to make an easy breakfast dish that I could just throw in the oven for Steve and his friend Joe on Sunday.  I knew they were basically going to be doing "dude things" all day and might be feeling a little rough on Sunday.  I made it Saturday night and threw it in the oven on Sunday.  This was so easy and yummy!  I think it would also be very easy to cut in half as well.  

18 slices white bread, cubed (I used more like 13)
8 oz. cooked ham, cubed (I bought the small pre-cut cubes)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups diced swiss cheese
6 eggs
3 1/2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon onion powder (I left out because we didn't have it)
2 cups crushed, cornflakes cereal
1/2 cup butter, melted

Lightly grease a 9x13 baking dish.  Line the bottom of the dish with half the bread cubes.  Sprinkle with the ham, cheddar cheese and swiss cheese.  Then top with remaining bread cubes.

In a bowl, beat together the eggs, milk and onion powder.  Pour evenly over the bread.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a small bowl, blend the crushed cornflakes and melted butter.  Spread evenly over the casserole.

Bake 40 minutes in the pre-heated oven or until bubbly and golden brown.  Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
