Cheesy Bacon and Egg Brunch Casserole

This morning the kids and I made a new breakfast casserole. I had unexpected surgery on my knee last weekend so we have not been cooking much this week, but today since we were not in a hurry to get anyone out the door decided to try something new. The kids were great helpers and Taylor (my 8 year old) took pictures of the finished product. It was delicious and we'll be making this one again!


8 bacon

2 green onion, diced

1 (8 oz.) Italian bread, cut into 1-inch cubes

2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

8 eggs

1 1/2 milk

1 tsp ground mustard

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper


Preheat oven to 350°F. Cook bacon in large skillet until crisp. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the drippings. Drain bacon on paper towels; crumble and set aside. Add onion to drippings in skillet; cook and stir 3 minutes or until softened.

Spread 1/2 of the bread cubes in 13x9-inch baking dish. Layer with 1/2 each of the onion, bacon, Cheddar cheese. Top with remaining bread cubes, onion, bacon, Cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese.

Beat eggs in medium bowl until foamy. Add milk, mustard, salt and pepper; beat until blended. Pour evenly over top. Press bread cubes lightly into egg mixture until completely covered. Let stand 10 minutes. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until center is set and top is golden brown.

Make Ahead Tip: Casserole can be assembled 1 day ahead. Prepare as directed, increasing milk by 1/2 cup.
