Ham and Cheese Strata

Adapted By Brennan's 27 Sep 2018

Serving Size: Serves 4


8 large eggs

1 1/2 cups milk

1/2 teaspoons salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

4 cups Italian bread cubes (1 inch)

6 ounces (1 1/2 cups) ham, cut into 1/2 inch cubes

6 ounces (about 1 1/2 cups) Brennan’s Cellars Gouda Cheese, cut into 3/4 inch cubes

1/2 cup julienne sun dried tomatoes, drained

1/4 cup plus 1 Tablespoon snipped chives

1 cup (about 4 ounces) coarsely grated Brennan’s Cellars Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Adapted From:

This easy to make recipe is perfect for holiday brunches! You’ll find yourself getting requests for this every year!

Preheat the oven to 450. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk, salt and pepper. Stir in the bread until evenly moistened, then stir in the ham, Gouda cheese, sun-dried tomatoes and ¼ cup of the chives.

Butter a 9 by 12-inch baking dish and pour in the strata mixture. Sprinkle with the Cheddar cheese on top. Bake for about 20 minutes, until puffed and golden. Let cool slightly, sprinkle with the remaining chives and serve.

Cook’s Note:  We’ve made this with and without the ham and it’s delicious both ways!
