  • 1 day-old baguette or loaf of french bread 12 oz., cut into 20 slices (toast lightly if bread is fresh)
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 9 ounces Monterey Jack cheese shredded
  • 8 ounces thinly sliced Black Forest ham
  • 4 eggs
  • cups milk use whatever milk you have on hand, I used 2% milk
  • Salt and pepper
  • syrup for serving


  • Cut half of the bread into ½ inch pieces. Place in large bowl and pour melted butter over it and stir until bread is moistened.
  • Spread Dijon mustard on the remaining slices of bread. Lay the bread on bottom of greased casserole dish. If you need to, overlap pieces. Sprinkle ½ cup of cheese on top of bread. Fold slices of ham in half and layer evenly on top of cheese. Sprinkle ½ of the remaining cheese over the ham. Cover all with the chopped pieces of bread and then with remaining cheese.
  • Mix together eggs, milk, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Pour over the casserole and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake until lightly brown and bubbly on top, about 25-35 minutes. Let cool for at least 5 minutes before serving. Serve with your favorite syrup on the side.
