We have been making Breakfast Casserole on Christmas morning in my family for as long as I can remember. It’s cheesey, bacony, bready, eggy goodness. It is my ultimate comfort food. It is also so, so bad for you, as you can imagine.
The ingredients are 1 pound of bacon, a pound of cheddar, a loaf of sliced French bread, milk, and a dozen eggs (oh, and butter for greasing the casserole dish ). Basically, you diced the bread and bacon (about 1×1), and you shred the cheese. Beat the eggs. Dump the bread into the greased 8×10 casserole dish. Pour the eggs over the bread. Cover the bread with the bacon, then spread the cheese on top. Pour milk into the casserole dish until it comes up to be level with the top of the bread (a clear casserole dish helps). Bake covered with foil at 350 for about 45 minutes, then remove the foil and bake till bubbly — about 15 minutes.
It is so good. I can’t wait. Better go running Christmas morning.
