Prep Time:15 minutes
Cook Time:60 minutes
Total Time:75 minutes
1 baguette French bread
1/4 cup of cream
2 slices of thick cut ham
2 oz cream cheese
2 oz Fontina cheese
2 oz sharp cheddar
Preheat oven to 350
Cube the baguette into large bite size pieces, approximately 1-2″ in size. If doing so a day ahead of time, leave out the bread cubes to harden slightly. Otherwise, spread over a pan and bake for 3-5 minutes to make the pieces a little crusty.
While toasting the bread, whip up the eggs and cream until light and full of air bubbles.
Cube ham into small pieces, approximately 1/4-1/2″ in size
When the bread is done, grease an 8×8 pan and layer 1/3 of the bread on the bottom. Then add 1/3 of the ham, cream cheese (in small dollops), FOntina and cheddar cheese. Repeat layers until everything is used up.
Once all the other ingredients are layered, pour whipped eggs evenly over the entire pan.
Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes, until the center has set. Check at 30 minutes. You may need to cover to prevent cheese from browning too much.
