Grease the bottom of a deep 20 x 30cm baking dish with a little butter. Tear or cut the baguette into bite-size pieces, then arrange over the bottom of the dish. Tuck the ham pieces and grated cheese between the gaps. Whisk together the eggs, milk, cream and mustard and pour over the bread. Cover and chill for at least 3 hrs or preferably overnight.
Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Bake for 40-45 mins until the top is crisp and golden and the egg mixture is cooked through. If the topping browns a little too quickly, cover with foil for the remainder of the cooking time. Serve immediately.
