Mustard Ham Strata

I had this at a bed-and-breakfast years ago. The owners were kind enough to give me the recipe, and I've made it many times since. —Dolores Zornow, Poynette, Wisconsin

    I have made this several times for large brunch gatherings, where I double or triple the recipe. It seems to please everybody. I've also halved the recipe and baked it in a square pan for just the two of us.

    This was a fantastic recipe and easy to make. I had to cook it about 15 minutes longer at 350 to get it to firm up.

    Made this as directed except omitted salt. I should have added it, but overall this is an excellent recipe, one I will definitely make again. Used sourdough (with crusts) & it came out wonderful.
