  • 8 slices of bread (preferably stale or day-old)
  • 200g cooked ham, diced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional, for garnish)


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Cut the bread into 1-inch cubes and place half of them in the prepared baking dish.
  3. Sprinkle half of the diced ham over the bread cubes, followed by half of the shredded cheddar cheese and half of the grated Parmesan cheese.
  4. Layer the remaining bread cubes on top, followed by the rest of the ham, cheddar cheese, and Parmesan cheese.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, heavy cream, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder until well combined.
  6. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the bread and ham layers in the baking dish. Press down gently with a spatula to ensure the bread absorbs the liquid.
  7. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  8. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the bake is set.
  9. Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired.
