1 (8-ounce) carton egg substitute

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and ham, and sauté 5 minutes or until onion begins to brown.

Combine the milk, mustard, pepper and egg substitute in a large bowl and stir until well-blended. Stir in the onion mixture. Add bread and toss gently to coat.

Arrange half of the bread mixture in a single layer in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese and top with remaining bread mixture. Cover strata, and chill 8 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350°.
Uncover strata. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese; bake an additional 20 minutes or until set.
