Colorful Ham Strata Recipe

Colorful Ham Strata Recipe

Marilou's make-ahead breakfast bake is a cinch, particularly when leftover ham is used. Chock-full of peppers, onions and cheese, the eye-opener makes an ideal contribution to brunch buffets and is a great way to start the day.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling Bake: 30 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 medium onions, quartered and sliced
  • 3/4 cup each julienned green and sweet red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) French bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1-1/2 cups diced fully cooked ham (3/4 pound)
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, saute onions and peppers in oil. Place half of the bread cubes in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with half of the onion mixture, ham and cheese. Repeat layers.
  • 2. In a bowl, beat the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour over bread mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

"I made this Christmas morning. Since we eat our holiday dinner on Christmas Eve, I used some leftover ham. I had it prepped before I went to bed. The next morning, I popped it in the oven while everyone opened gifts. The only change I made was topping the strata with a layer of frozen hash browns just before putting it in the oven. Everyone loved it, including the younger grandkids!"
