Blue and Yellow have always been one of my favorites!
And this kitchen brings them together perfectly.
This is a small kitchen but you can't tell. I love the combination of the way they
did some cupboards yellow and some blue.
But this feels like Brunch cooking to me...
so how about:
Ham and Egg Strata
- 1 1/2 cups chopped asparagus, divided
- 6 cups cubed French bread or sourdough bread, divided
- 1 1/2 cups diced ham
- 4 eggs, beaten
- 2 1/2 cups milk
- salt and pepper to taste
Blanch asparagus briefly in boiling water; drain well. Spoon 1 1/2 cups of the bread cubes into a buttered 2-quart casserole. Scatter half of the asparagus over the bread. Top with another 1 1/2 cups of bread cubes. Cover with the 1 1/2 cups diced ham. Top with another 1 1/2 cups bread cubes then layer remaining asparagus over that. Cover asparagus layer with remaining 1 1/2 cups bread cubes. Whisk together the eggs and milk; season with salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture evenly over the strata. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours, or overnight to cook and serve the next morning. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
Poor over the top:
Spicy Cheese Sauce
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- salt and pepper
- hot pepper sauce, to taste
Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; stir in flour and mustard until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Do not let mixture brown. Gradually add milk; continue cooking, stirring constantly, until thickened and boiling. Boil 1 minute. Add cheese and continue stirring until cheese is melted. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and hot pepper sauce.
