6 ounces thinly sliced ham, roughly chopped
8 ounces shredded Monterrey Jack cheese, divide
2 tablespoons dried minced onions, divide
6 eggs, beaten
3 1/4 cups half-and-half
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce (about 2 shakes)
Ham and Cheese Strata Recipe Directions:
Grease your rice cooker inner pot with the butter (leave any excess in the pot).
Cut stale bread squares into 16 triangles, (cut up and leave out overnight, or toast briefly in a 250 F oven)
Place 8 of the bread triangles into the bottom of the cooker; sprinkle in the trimmed-off crusts so that the bottom of the cooker is covered with bread.
Add the ham, sprinkling it over the bread to make a thick layer, then add all but 1/2 cup of the cheese.
Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the onions over the cheese; top with remaining 8 bread pieces and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, half-and-half, salt, pepper and Tabasco sauce; whisk until blended. Pour the egg mixture over the bread triangles, then sprinkle with remaining onions.
Let mixture sit 15 minutes, then sprinkle on reserved 1/2 cup of cheese.
You can vary the amounts of cheese and ham as you desire or substitute with sausage.
Cover, cook and serve your strata!
