Ham and Apple Strata
4 slices bread, cubed
12-oz. pkg. frozen escalloped apples, thawed*
1 cup chopped ham
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded Havarti cheese
4 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup heavy cream
*(If you can't find frozen escalloped apples, use a 16 oz can of apple pie filling, removing a few tablespoons of the thickened liquid.)
Place bread cubes in a greased 9" deep dish pie pan. Cover with the apples. Then layer on ham and cheeses.
Beat together eggs and cream in small bowl. Pour over strata, cover and refrigerate overnight or up to 24 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake the strata, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes until center is set and top is light golden brown. Serve with maple syrup and powdered sugar. 6 servings
