Christmas Breakfast Strata

I made this when Mom and my brother Bob and his wife Norma came down here for Christmas. It was great, and along with a fruit salad, kept us quite nicely until Christmas dinner at Auntie Bessie's. This works out well - you prepare it the night before, then Christmas morning just pop it in the oven while you are exploring what Santa brought, then enjoy it. Of course the hardest part is finding room in the fridge to store it overnight.
 
Ingredients:
Recommend this recipe to a friend

16 slices white bread, crusts removed
Thinly sliced ham
Slices of cheddar cheese (or 1 cup grated)
6 eggs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 cup minced onion
1/4 cup finely chopped red or green pepper
1 teaspoon Worchestershire sauce
Dash of red pepper sauce
3 cups milk
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup crushed cereal (optional)

 

 
Directions:
On The Menu

Butter a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.

Arrange 8 slices of bread in the bottom of the dish.

Top each slice of bread with 1 or 2 slices of ham, and slices of cheddar cheese. You can also use grated cheddar cheese and sprinkle it evenly over top.

Cover with the remaining 8 slices of bread (so you have 8 sandwiches).

Beat eggs, add salt, pepper, mustard, onions, chopped pepper, Worchestershire sauce, and red pepper sauce. Stir in milk.

Pour the egg mixture over the sandwiches. Cover and refrigerate over night.

In the morning, melt the butter and pour over top. Top with crushed cereal, like corn flakes, rice krispies, etc. if desired. (It makes it look pretty.)

Bake, uncovered, for 1 hour at 350 degrees F. Remove from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
