1
tablespoon butter
2
cups diced cooked ham
1
cup chopped onion
6
cups cubes (1 inch) French bread (about 9 oz)
2
cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend (8 oz)
7
eggs
1
pouch (9 oz) Progresso™ Recipe Starters™ creamy three cheese cooking sauce
1/2
cup milk
1
tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4
cup sliced green onions (4 medium)

Directions

  • 1 Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. In 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Cook ham and onion in butter 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion is soft. Remove from heat.
  • 2 In baking dish, layer half of the bread cubes, half of the ham mixture and 1 cup of the cheese. Repeat layers of bread cubes and ham mixture.
  • 3 In large bowl, beat eggs, cooking sauce, milk and mustard with wire whisk until blended; pour over bread. Press bread down gently so all pieces absorb egg mixture. Top with remaining 1 cup cheese. Cover with foil; refrigerate at least 4 hours but no longer than 24 hours.
  • 4 Heat oven to 325°F. Bake strata loosely covered 40 minutes. Uncover; bake about 20 minutes longer or until top is golden brown and knife inserted in center comes out clean. Sprinkle with green onions.
