  • 2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 1 cup onion chopped
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 ½ lbs ham cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 10 oz frozen spinach thawed and drained
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper

  • 2 ½ cup skim milk
  • 9 eggs
  • ½ tsp dry mustard


  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the two cheeses and set aside.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add butter and onions. Sauté until onions soften and become translucent.
  • Add the cubed ham, frozen spinach, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine and remove from heat.
  • Grease a 3 quart baking dish with butter and spread one third of the bread on the bottom.
  • Add about a third of the ham mixture to the top of the bread cubes. Sprinkle a third of the cheese over the ham. Repeat the layers two more times.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, mustard, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pour the egg mixture over the strata.
