This rich egg and cheese casserole is a great way to start the day.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1/2 (1 pound) loaf French bread, cut into 1 inch cubes
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/4 pound Swiss cheese, shredded
- 1/4 pound Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
- 2 cups diced cooked ham
- 8 eggs, beaten
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Arrange bread in the bottom of a lightly greased medium baking dish, and drizzle with butter. Top with Swiss cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, and ham.
In a medium bowl, blend eggs, milk, and mustard. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into the baking dish. Cover, and refrigerate 8 hours, or overnight.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Blend sour cream and Parmesan cheese in a small bowl, and set aside.

Spread sour cream mixture over the surface of the baked dish, and continue cooking about 10 minutes, until surface is lightly browned. Allow to sit about 15 minutes before serving.
