If entertaining Xmas Eve, for breakfast or lunch, I make a Strata with ham, cheese, spinache filling and serve with salad - easy to make the Strata ahead of time and just bung into the oven!.

This strata is great for a group at brunch, lunch or supper!. You can assemble it a day ahead, so it's perfect for busy times!.

Servings: 8

1 loaf sourdough bread
1 pkg (10 oz/300 g) frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
6 green onions, thinly sliced
1-1/2 cups (375 mL) shredded swiss cheese
1 cup (250 mL) diced ham or smoked turkey
8 eggs
2-1/2 cups (625 mL) milk
1 tbsp (15 mL) dijon mustard
1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper
Cut bread into 1-inch (2!.5 cm) cubes to make about 12 cups (3 L)!. In large bowl, stir together bread, spinach, onions, cheese and ham!. Spoon into greased 13- x 9-inch (3 L) glass baking dish!.

In bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, mustard, salt and pepper; pour over bread mixture and let stand for 20 minutes!. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours!.)

Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until puffed and golden, about 45 minutes!. Www@FoodAQ@Com
