1 tablespoon butter
8 slices low-carb white bread, remove and save crusts
6 ounces thinly sliced ham, roughly chopped
8 ounces shredded Monterey jack cheese, divided
2 tablespoons dried minced onions, divided
6 eggs, beaten
3 1/4 cups half and half
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce


Grease the slow cooker crock pot with the butter (leave excess in the crock pot).

Cut staled bread squares into 16 triangles, (cut up and leave out overnight, or toast briefly in a 250 degrees F oven)

Place 8 of the bread triangles into the bottom of the slow cooker; sprinkle in the trimmed-off crusts so that the bottom of the slow cooker is covered with bread.

Add the ham, sprinkling it over the bread to make a thick layer, then add all but 1/2 cup of the cheese.

Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the onions over the cheese; top with remaining 8 bread triangles and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, half-and-half, salt, pepper and Tabasco sauce; whisk until blended. Pour the egg mixture over the bread triangles, then sprinkle with remaining onions.

Let mixture sit 15 minutes, then sprinkle on reserved 1/2 cup of cheese.

Cover and cook on LOW for 3 hours. Remove the slow cooker lid and let the strata rest for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
