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


  • 12 slices day-old bread, crusts removed, cubed
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed fully cooked ham

  • 3/4 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 7 large eggs
  • 3 cups 2% milk
  • 3 teaspoons ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. In a 13x9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray, layer bread cubes, ham, green pepper, cheeses and onion. In a large bowl, combine eggs, milk, mustard and salt. Pour over top. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
