Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 large loaf day old white bread (you can dry it out in a 225 degree oven for an hour or so, or overnight in the oven - bread must be crunchy)
Danola or similar ham, large package, diced and precooked in a fry pan with butter.
2 pks Draft Deli Select cheese
4 cups whole milk
4 eggs
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp dry mustard
(I like to sneak in a 1/2 tsp. of curry, not in original recipe)
1/2 tsp. salt & pepper to taste
Kellogg's corn flakes, small box should do
1 small stick of butter (not unsalted)

Directions:
Directions:
Generously spray a 9 x 13 inch pan with spray.

In a large bowl, mix milk, eggs, nutmeg, dry mustard, (curry) salt and pepper and mix well. Lay the first layer of dried bread into the pan. Crumble ham over the layer and ladle some egg mixture over the bread and ham. (don't drench it) place a layer of cheese on top of ham and repeat the bread, ham, egg mixture and cheese process. Gently press down all the mixture and refrigerate for at least a few hours. Preferable overfnight so bread can soak up egg mixture.

Preheat over to 350. Meanwhile, melt butter over a low heat. While that's heating, spread corn flakes over entire casserole and give it a gentle squish. Drizzle melted butter over the top and bake for an hour. Check after 45 minutes to make sure flakes aren't burning. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting. Great with strawberries and blueberries on the side and a mimosa.

This is a recipe from Bruno's sister Sandi (the other Sandi Sartini) We loved it when we would go to visit her. Great when you have guest coming because you can prepare it the day before.
