Overnight Breakfast Strata
- 4 slices hearty white bread, crusts cut off, and coarsely torn into pieces
- 4 eggs, beaten with a fork slightly
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion
- 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese
Lightly grease an 8 inch square baking pan.
Arrange pieces of bread in pan.
In separate bowl, put eggs, milk, mustard, and onion and mix together well, then pour over bread.
Top with cooked bacon, cover the pan with foil, and put in refrigerator overnight.
In the morning, remove the casserole from refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Bake casserole, covered, for 25 to 30 minutes.
Uncover and arrange shredded cheese on top.
Put back in oven, uncovered, and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and starts to brown.
Remove from oven and let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.
This casserole serves 4 people, and can be doubled using a 9×13 pan instead.
Add whatever other ingredients you might want in this, included chopped green pepper, diced tomatoes, sausage, or chilis for more flavor.
This is a great Christmas morning casserole.
