Strata (egg casserole)

My favorite special breakfast.  This recipe was given to me by my friend Gail many years ago.  Michael adapted it to single servings with lower fat content.

Strata (Egg Casserole) (2 servings: 2 dishes)
2 slices whole wheat bread
2 eggs
2/3 c milk (1/2%)
2 slices deli ham, chopped
1/2 small onion, chopped
1 can mushroom pieces or slices (4 oz) (or 6 oz. fresh mushrooms, chopped and sauteed)
1/2 c shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 t dry mustard, optional

Spray 2 individual casserole dishes with cooking spray.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Beat eggs with the milk , pepper, and dry mustard.  Dividing the ingredients, put a slice of bread in the dish, add the onions, ham, mushrooms, cheese, top with egg mixture.  Bake 15 minutes, check it, continue in 5 minute increments until golden and firm.  This casserole will "fall" slightly after you remove it from the oven.  Serve it right in the dishes, but pad them because they are hot.
