Ham-Asparagus and Cheese Strata

Ingredients
8
ounces asparagus spears, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
5
cups French bread cubes
2
cups shredded Gruyere or white cheddar cheese, (8 oz.)
1/2
1/4
cup chopped chives or green onions
8
ounces cooked ham, diced
10
eggs
1 1/2
cups milk

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boiling. Add asparagus; cook 5 minutes or until bright green.
  2. In a greased 3-quart baking dish spread half the bread cubes. Top with cheese, onion, chives and half the ham and asparagus. Top with remaining bread.
  3. In a bowl whisk together four of the eggs and the milk. Evenly pour over layers in dish. Press down bread pieces into the egg milk mixture with the back of a spoon. Top with remaining ham and asparagus. Cover; refrigerate until ready to bake.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes more or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in center of strata registers 170 degrees F and eggs are set. Let stand 15 minutes.
