  1. 1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, remove from pan and drain of all but 2 tbsp. of the bacon fat. Add potatoes to the hot bacon drippings and cook until just tender — about 5–7 minutes. Add ham and onion. Cook and stir until onion is tender and stir in ranch dressing packet.
  2. 2. In a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish, layer half the bread cubes, potatoes mixture, bacon and cheese. Repeat layers of bread, potatoes, meat and cheese.
  3. 3. In a large bowl, beat the eggs; add the milk and salt. Pour over all. Cover and chill overnight.
  4. 4. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 65–70 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
  5. 5. Notes: For extra veggie love, we suggest tossing in your favorite leafy green like spinach or kale.
