Ham and Cheese Strata


12 slices of bread
2 c. diced ham
1 lb. cheese
2 tbsp. dry onion
3 1/2 c. milk (plus more)
1/2 tsp dry mustard
6 eggs

Cut doughnut shapes out of the bread. Use the scrapes (broken up) and place in the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan. Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl then pour over the broken bread. Place the remaining doughnut shaped bread on top. Fill the pan nearly to the top with milk. Sprinkle grated cheese on top and cover with foil. Refrigerate overnight. Bake 325 for 1 hour uncovered.

Haylee’s Note:
My family eats this for breakfast every 4th of July. I got in the mood for it a little early. I also only made 1/2 a batch. If you do that use less milk when you are pouring to the top. For the cheese we usually use cheddar and I think I would like that the best, but feel free to try other kinds. Here are a few extra pictures.
