Overnight Cheese Strata with Bacon Jam

Don't know about you, but I buy baguettes with great intentions, only to find them stale 4 days later. No worries. Even if your baguette is rock hard, you can bring it back to life in this easy strata. Chop (or chisel) the baguette into pieces. Cover with eggs and milk, dollop with bacon jam (this yummy concoction from Tinwings in the Nations neighborhood) and cheese and bake. I soaked the strata overnight, but 30 minutes will do too.
