High-quality smoked ham is worth the cost. It infuses the pudding with a smoky flavor that complements the spinach, peppers, rosemary and Gruyere.

Make Ahead Tip: Prepare the pudding through Step 3; refrigerate overnight. Let stand at room temperature while the oven preheats. Bake as directed in Step 4.
For Custard:
4   large egg whites
4   large eggs
1 cup  skim milk
For Seasonings:
2 tablespoons  Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
1 teaspoon  minced fresh rosemary
For Bread & filling:
4 cups  whole-grain bread, crusts removed if desired, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 1/2 pound, 4-6 slices)
5 cups  chopped spinach, wilted (see Tip)
1/2 cup  chopped jarred roasted red peppers
1 cup  diced ham steak (5 ounces)
For Topping:
3/4 cup  shredded gruyere cheese

Tip: To wilt greens, rinse greens thoroughly in cool water. Transfer them to a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and punch several holes in the wrap. Microwave on high until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Squeeze out any excess moisture from the greens before adding them to the recipe.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat an 11-by-7-inch glass baking dish or a 2-quart casserole with cooking spray.

To prepare custard: Whisk egg whites, eggs and milk in a medium bowl. Add mustard, pepper and rosemary: whisk to combine.

Toss bread, spinach, roasted red peppers and ham in a large bowl. Add the custard and toss well to coat. Transfer to the prepared baking dish and push down to compact. Cover with foil.

Bake until the custard has set, 40 to 45 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with cheese and continue baking until the pudding is puffed and golden on top, 15 to 20 minutes more. Transfer to a wire rack and cool for 15 to 20 minutes before serving.

Great on Christmas Morning
We made this ahead of time on Christmas Eve. It was simple and easy to put together. One comment is next time I will find a way to make sure the cheese is mixed within the receipe.
