Boy Likes to Cook~Christmas Breakfast Casserole

Foodie_Friday_Logo_2 This is the very first time I have joined in on Foodie Friday. Oh, I have often visited and have gotten great ideas and inspiration, but never had something to share until now and it features one of my sons, Christian!

Original Recipe Yield 6 servings. I tweaked it for 10 servings because, at our house, we always aim to have leftovers!

My son’s notes about this recipe:” Be sure to whip the eggs good and frothy. This helps get the eggs fluffy and avoid sogginess. It puffs up like a souffle.”

  • 11-1/2 slices white bread, crusts removed and cubed
  • 3-1/3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 10 eggs
  • 5 cups milk
  • 1-3/4 teaspoons ground mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 10 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled

In a greased 11-in. x 7-in. x 2-in. baking dish, combine the bread cubes and cheese. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, mustard, salt and pepper; pour over bread and cheese. Top with bacon. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

  1. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 50-55 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

My husband and I were talking just this morning about an easy, little-fuss breakfast I can whip up for Christmas morning. This looks perfect!!

Thank you for sharing - visiting from Foodie Friday

I make something similar with crescent rolls but sure want to try your recipe. It looks so good.

This is our traditional Christmas breakfast, too...Only I make it with crumbled sausage. I tried to change the menu a couple of times, but the boys (and the DIL) threw a fit. We have this with freshly baked cinnamon rolls, coffee, and mimosas (the kids are grown, now. This is their contribution.)
