christmas strauda

As a family tradition, we have Christmas Strauda for breakfast every Christmas morning. It is absolutely scrumptious and even the pickiest of eaters will love it. And, it's so easy!

Christmas Strauda:
{prepare the night prior to eating}

16 pieces bread
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
2 cups cubed ham
6 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
3 c milk
*optional ingredients found at bottom of post

In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, milk, and salt. Set aside. Break bread into small pieces and place on the bottom of a large baking dish. Alternate between layering ham and cheese over the bread pieces. Pour egg mixture over the layers.

Cover with foil, refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 325. Bake for 40 minutes, covered. Uncover, bake another 10 minutes until the top layer is golden brown.

Serve hot.


*For less-picky individuals, consider adding a layer of diced green peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, or green onions for added flavor and color.
