DIRECTIONS

  • Grease a 13 x 9 inch ovenproof casserole dish.
  • Place 1/3 of bread slices in the casserole, to make a single layer.
  • Top the bread with half the ham, turkey, and sliced cheese.
  • Repeat with another layer of bread, ham, turkey, and cheese.
  • Use remaining third of the bread for the top crust.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, salt, and pepper.
  • Pour the mixture over the layers of bread in the casserole, tilting the casserole to make sure the liquid is evenly distributed.
  • Brush the top with melted butter and cover the dish with plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerate the casserole for 12 hours, or up to 24 hours before baking.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • Remove the plastic wrap from the casserole, sprinkle the top with the grated Swiss cheese, and bake the pie for 45-55 minutes, until it is puffed and golden.
  • Remove from the oven, allow to stand for 5 minutes, and cut into squares to serve.
