Easter Leftovers, Part 1


I only buy a big ham about once a year at Easter. I love the leftovers and look forward to finding new recipes with ham in them to use up the ham that we can't eat plain. I found some good recipes this year (and some that I can't wait to try next year when I have more ham!). Here's the first of the bunch.

Ham 'n' Cheese Strata


12 slices white bread, crusts removed
1 pound fully cooked ham, diced
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
6 eggs
3 cups milk
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Dash cayenne pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup crushed cornflakes


Arrange six slices of bread in the bottom of a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Top with ham and cheese. Cover with remaining bread.

In a bowl, beat eggs, milk, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt, pepper, and cayenne. Stir in onion and green pepper; pour over all. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Pour butter over bread; sprinkle with cornflakes. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 50-60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Yield: 8-10 servings.

Notes: This was really good. Plus, it was nice to throw it together the night before and then just pop it in the oven the next day.
