Easy Ham and Cheese Strata Recipe

I decided that even though I couldn't be with my family today, I would still have our traditional Easter Sunday strata. I downsized the recipe to this smaller version.

2 slices bread (I used whole grain wheat), torn into small pieces
4 eggs
1/4 cup milk or half and half
1 t mustard powder
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup (4 oz) diced smoked ham

Spray an 8" square baking dish with cooking spray. Sprinkle bread in pan. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk or half and half and seasonings. Stir in cheese and meats.

Carefully pour over the top of the bread. Cover tightly with foil and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 350°.

Bake strata 35 minutes. Remove foil and bake til set, about 10 minutes more.

Let rest 5 minutes before slicing and serving.http://media-files.gather.com/images/d388/d303/d746/d224/d96/f3/full.jpghttp://media-files.gather.com/images/d386/d303/d746/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg
Variations: Stir in sauteed onion or green pepper or stir in your favorite breakfast meats. Serve with diced tomato.
