Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 slices white bread, crusts removed and bread cubed
  • 5 14 ounces boursin cheese, round (if Boursin is unavailable, a herb or garlic cream cheese may be substituted)
  • 12 cup mayonnaise
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 12-34 lb sliced or cubed ham
  • 8 ounces white cheddar cheese, shredded
  • slivered almonds


  1. Combine Boursin and mayonnaise in large bowl and cream together. Add eggs, one at a time, then mix in cream.
  2. Place a layer of bread in a greased casserole dish (9x11). Add a layer of ham and cheese. Continue layering bread, ham, and cheese, ending with a layer of bread.
  3. Pour Boursin mixture over bread, ham, and cheese, covering bread completely. Sprinkle almonds over the top.
  4. Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight.
  5. Allow strata to come to room temperature.

  7. Bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until center of strata is set. Uncover strata during the last few minutes of baking to allow for browning.
