I just saw Paula make this on the "Bistro Brunch" episode. It's like a very rich fried ham and cheese sandwich in a casserole. She also used a larger dish on the show, I will use a 9X13. I think it would be fine without the nutmeg, a little of it goes a long way. Also, some of the reviewers on the other site suggested a more sturdy bread, I will use a good artisan sour dough bread. Make sure your ham is sliced thin and use unsalted butter.I might even try it with cooked bacon. I'm going to test it first and maybe serve for Christmas morning.
