Ingredients

  • 10 large eggs
  • 1.5 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves, plus more for garnish (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups cubed French bread or baguette
  • 1/2 lb. ham (or sausage or bacon), chopped
  • 1.5 cups  shredded white or orange cheddar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. If using sausage or bacon, cook before adding.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, mustard, thyme, and garlic powder and season generously with salt and pepper.
  3. Butter a large baking dish. Add bread and top with ham and cheddar. Pour over egg mixture.
  4. Bake until eggs are cooked through and ham is golden, 45 to 55 minutes. (To make ahead, cover baking dish with aluminum foil and refrigerate at least 4 hours and up to overnight, then bake as directed.)
