This do-head dish features three kinds of bread, giving it a deliciously different taste. —Shirley Roby, Johnstown, Ohio


  • 4 slices each wheat, rye and Italian bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 cups cubed fully cooked ham

  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2-1/2 cups whole milk


  1. Layer half of the bread cubes in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with ham and 1 cup cheese. Top with remaining bread cubes. Combine the parsley, onion, basil and pepper; sprinkle over bread. In a bowl, beat the eggs and milk; pour over the top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
