1cupcubed fully cooked ham(about 8 oz - you want a ham steak cubed not deli ham)
1can(4 ounces) chopped green chilies
1/4cupfinely chopped onion
2tablespoonsminced fresh cilantro
Butter bread; cube with a knife(or tear into 1 inch pieces) and place in a greased 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle with chilies, 1-3/4 cups cheese, ham, onion and cilantro.
Whisk the eggs, milk, salt, cumin and mustard in a large bowl. Pour over bread mixture; cover and refrigerate overnight.
Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking and preheat oven to 350°. Bake, covered for 35 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup cheese. Bake 10-20 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. I like more on the less moist side so I cook it on the longer side. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.
