I've served this both for breakfast/brunch, as well as for dinner with a salad. It's very versatile, and you can do it with chicken instead of the ham, if you prefer.

Ingredients

  • 4 slice
    bread, cubed
  • 2 oz
    cheese, cut in small cubes (i like to use swiss cheese, w/ the ham, but you can use any cheese that suits your tastebuds).
  • 3/4 c
    ham, cubed
  • 2 Tbsp
    butter
  • 3
    eggs
  • 1 c
    milk
  • 1/4 tsp
    dry mustard
  • 1/4 tsp
    salt
  • 1/2 tsp
    onion flakes
  • 2 oz
    shredded cheddar cheese
  • ·
    paprika

How to Make HAM AND CHEESE STRATA

Step-by-Step

  1. Lightly grease a small baking dish, such as a 8x8" pan, or a small casserole dish. Layer half of the bread cubes on the bottom. Layer the cheese cubes and the ham over the bread. (Note: At this point, you can layer some chopped spinach over the ham/cheese, if desired ... but make SURE the spinach is well-drained, and squeezed VERY dry!
    Top with the remaining bread cubes. Dot with butter.)
  2. In a small bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, seasonings, and onion flakes.
  3. Pour the milk mixture over the entire bread mixture. Sprinkle shredded cheese on top. Sprinkle with paprika.
  4. Refrigerate overnight, or at least a couple of hours.
  5. Preheat oven to 375°. Bake for 45 minutes, until set. Serve hot, with a salad, if making for dinner. If you're using this for a brunch, some fresh fruit on the side is nice, like pineapple or a fresh fruit salad.
  6. Note: if you really like cheese, add extra. I do, and nothing's better than a "little extra cheese". :o)
