Ham, Swiss and Spinach Strata
It's what you get when you take this and this recipe and come up with something new and improved.
3 T olive oil
1 1/2 cups onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
2-3 cups chopped fresh spinach (I used about 3 cups)
1 lb diced ham
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1-2 T Worcestershire Sauce
2-3 T Dijon Mustard
8 cups cubed french or Italian bread, cut into 1 -inch cubes (I used a loaf of Kirkland brand 100% Whole Wheat organic)
3 cups shredded Swiss cheese
9 large eggs
2 3/4 cups milk
Over medium heat saute onions in olive oil until soft, add garlic, salt, and pepper continue to cook for 1 minute. Stir in spinach, remove from heat and set aside.
Spray in inside of your 9x13 dish. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, Worcestershire Sauce, Dijon mustard and milk. Whisk together until blended and add bread cubes to bowl. Mix in spinach mixture and diced ham; place in your 9x13 dish. Spread Swiss cheese over mixture then cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 8 hours or up to 1 day.
Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350. Bake uncovered until puffed, golden brown and cooked through, 45-55 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
note: You can make it in layers if your prefer.
