Ham and Cheese Strata

Ham and Cheese Strata created by Nif_H

This strata, from my favorite new casserole cookbook, can be rustic down home comfort food or dressed up for a sophisticated brunch dish. The gruyere cheese with the touch of pear, apple and raisins makes this traditional dish something special.

    Nice brunch dish! It is sweet and savoury and balances out very nicely. I chose to use the cinnamon raisin bread, Black Forest ham, some white and green onion, pear and old cheddar. Next time I would use a little less milk, and more of the mustard and Worcestershire. I made this as listed but had to bake it for the uncovered stage for 1 hour instead of 25 minutes. I will make this again with a couple of little changes - it was YUMMY! Made for Kittencal's Green tag. Thanks Lauralie41! :)

    This was great for breakfast this morning! I used cheddar cheese about 2 cups worth and recipe #221343 for the bread. This is a great recipe for using up leftover ham that we had from Thanksgiving. Thanks, Lauralie41! :)
