3 to 4 slices white bread, cubed
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound precooked ham, cubed
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Grease a glass or ceramic 9-inch pie pan. Cover the bottom of the pie pan with a single layer of bread cubes, followed by ham, followed by cheese. In a bowl, beat the eggs, milk, dry mustard and salt until frothy and fully combined. Pour the egg mixture over the ingredients in the pie pan. Drizzle melted butter over top. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake, uncovered, at 325 degrees F for 45 minutes to an hour, or until the egg mixture is fully set and the top is golden brown.

- 1 (5 pound) ready-to-eat ham
- 1/4 cup whole cloves
- 1/4 cup dark corn syrup (or brown sugar)
- 2 cups honey
- 2/3 cup butter
You can use a 12 pound ham with the same amount of cloves, brown sugar, honey and butter.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
- Score ham, and stud with the whole cloves. Place ham in foil lined pan.
- In the top half of a double boiler, heat the corn syrup, honey and butter. Keep glaze warm while baking ham.
- Brush glaze over ham, and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Baste ham every 10 to 15 minutes with the honey glaze. During the last 4 to 5 minutes of baking, turn on broiler to caramelize the glaze. Remove from oven, and let sit a few minutes before serving. –From Allrecipes.
