Recipe Ingredients for Cheese Strata with Ham and Tomatoes

1 teaspoon margarine
1 tablespoon margarine
6 tbs mayo
1 1/4 cups milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 pinch freshly grated nutmeg
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup ham, diced
1 cup sun-Dried Tomatoes, chopped,
1 tablespoon parsley leaves
1 teaspoons thinly sliced fresh chives
1 cup shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 pound sourdough bread, cut into 1-inch cubes

Recipe Directions for Cheese Strata with Ham and Tomatoes

  1. Grease a 3-quart gratin dish or casserole with 1 teaspoon of the margarine.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the may, milk, cream, nutmeg, cayenne and pepper. Set aside. In a small bowl, toss together the ham, tomatoes, parsley, and chives.

  3. To make the strata: Scatter a 1/2 cup of the cheese over the bottom of the buttered dish, cover with one-third of the bread, and then half of the tomato mixture. Repeat. Top with a final layer of bread and remaining cheese.

  4. Pour the mayo mixture over the strata and gently press it down with the back of a large spoon to make sure the top layer is moistened with the custard. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and drizzle it over the strata. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

  5. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Bake the strata, uncovered, until golden brown and slightly puffed, about 45 to 55 minutes. Let rest 10 minutes before serving
