Equipment

  • 9x13 Baking Dish
  • Liquid Measuring Cup
  • Measuring Spoons

Ingredients

  • 10 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt optional
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 5 slices bread, dried on the counter for about 12 hours cubed
  • 1 1/4 pound bacon fried and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • chives to garnish

Instructions

  • Grease 9 x 13 inch pan. Layer dried bread cubes in the bottom of the pan.
  • Sprinkled shredded cheese over bread. Top with an even layer of bacon.
  • Whisk eggs well. Add milk, dry mustard and salt. Mix well and pour across the top of the casserole dish. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Remove casserole from the refrigerator while the oven preheats to 350 degrees F. Cook casserole uncovered for 30 - 45 minutes until the center is set.

Notes

  • Use dried bread when making an overnight casserole - fresh bread will be soggy
  • If looking to decrease carbs fewer slices of bread can be used
  • If looking to feed a crowd an extra slice or two of bread can be added
  • Cook bacon and cut into one-inch strips or bite-sized pieces
  • I prefer thick sliced bacon because more bacon is usually better
  • Extra bacon can absolutely be used.
  • Garnishing with chives or green onions is optional
  • Keep the casserole covered in the refrigerator, but uncover when baking
