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
