How to Make Ham Strata For Easter!

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook bacon in a large heavy skillet over medium heat until crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towel. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons drippings in Dutch oven and add fennel and leeks. Cook, stirring frequently, until soft, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in bacon, ham, and parsley. Set aside.

    Combine ricotta, salt, pepper, and 1 egg in a bowl; stir with a whisk until blended. Whisk in remaining 5 eggs. Stir in milk and spinach.

    Arrange half of bread slices in a single layer in a lightly greased 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Spoon half of ham mixture evenly over bread slices; pour half of milk mixture evenly over ham mixture. Repeat layers. Sprinkle with Parmesan. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

    Uncover and bake until set at 350 degrees F, 40 to 45 minutes.
