Make-Ahead “Ham & Cheese” Breakfast Casserole

This is one of thekitchn.com’s most popular recipes ever, published several years ago for a breakfast bake with bread, pancetta, Gruyere, and eggs. It’s rich, eggy, and unbelievably, incredibly delicious.

And for an added appeal: You throw everything in the dish the night before, allow the bread to soak up the egg-and-milk mixture overnight, and bake it in the morning. But while the make-ahead aspect of this dish is very convenient, you don’t have to make it ahead. You can also throw it together and bake it immediately.

Tortellini with Butternut Squash, Mushrooms, Gruyere, and Optional Sausage

This easy and cheesy (yet still relatively light) one-dish dinner is the perfect use for the winter squash that’s so plentiful right now. And it comes together quickly and easily. Nutty Gruyere cheese complements roasted butternut squash, earthy mushrooms, and fresh tortellini. Make the meat-eaters happy with a little crumbled sweet Italian sausage in theirs.

Tip: Cut up the butternut squash, add the mushrooms and sage, toss into a big zipper bag and refrigerate the day before. Then you have it all ready for an easy Monday or Tuesday night dinner prep.pasta Cheese-Tortellini-with-Butternut-Squash-Mushrooms-Gruyere-and-Sausage
