In microwave-safe shallow dish, combine broccoli and the water. Cover with vented plastic wrap and microwave on 100 percent power (high) for 2 to 3 minutes or just until tender.

Layer half of the bread cubes in a greased 2-quart square baking dish. Top with cheese, ham, and broccoli; add remaining bread cubes. In bowl, combine milk, egg product, onion, mustard, and pepper. Pour egg mixture evenly over the layers in dish. Cover with foil and chill in the refrigerator for 2 to 24 hours.
