Ham & Cheese Sandwich Casserole

I'm not sure where my little brain cooked this one up.  I love ham and cheese sandwiches, and more yeah...enter this guy: 

I had absolutely no idea what I was going to come up with or how this was going to turn out so I sort of threw in a little of this and that and it actually came out great.  

10 Slices of Stale or Toasted Italian Bread (or white bread, or anything really) 
5 Large Slices of Swiss 
10 Slices of Ham 
1/2 Cup of Grated Gouda
1/4 Cup of Grated Parm
6 Eggs
2 Cups of Milk
1 Squirt of Mustard 
2 Pinches of Dried Thyme
2 Tbs of Chopped Green Onions 
Softened Butter
Salt & Pepper 

Grease a 9x13 with butta.  Mo' butta mo' butt.  That's how I roll.  Literally. 

Now, line the bottom of the dish with half the bread.  You might need to do some creative work because the bread isn't going to fit perfectly.  

Next...layer on the ham...

...and then the Swiss...

 Next, add the milk, eggs, herbs, salt and pep, and mustard and whisk away. 

Layer the rest of the bread on top and then pour the egg and milk mixture on top....
Let the casserole sit for at least 4 hours.  If you are serving this to company, you can totally make this the night before.  Before it goes in the oven, sprinkle the gouda and the parm on top...

Here's what it looked like after 25 minutes in a 400 degree oven.  You'll basically know it's ready if you tip it on the side and the egg mixture doesn't pool up in the corner.  That way, you'll know it set. 

 Oh yes...

Mmmmmmm hmmmmm creamy, crunchy, cheesy, and hammy.  OH YES. 

The roof of my mouth is still burnt.  
Stay hungry!
