Another great recipe from Chickens in the Road. I could have just made eggs, bacon and toast with butter this morning. Everyone likes that, well almost everyone. Instead I decided to make this most delicious casserole, but kids are weird. Just plain old weird. This casserole has all the same ingredients you would get with buttered toast, bacon and scrambled eggs with cheese. I'm not sayin', I'm just sayin' it is the same thing just in a different shape. Some children looked at it like it was from Mars. I think it is delicious. Super Yummy. I'll say it again, kids are weird.
You could easily prep the day before baking, cooking bacon, cutting bread, grating cheese and then just throw it together in the morning.
Place bread in 3 quart baking dish and toss with butter.
Now toss the buttered bread cubes with cheese.
Mix together sour cream, eggs and milk. Pour over bread, mashing down a little to be sure to get all the pieces wet. Sprinkle crumbled bacon on top and cover with aluminum foil.
Here is the finished product! All puffed up with cheesy, buttery, bacony goodness.
Ultimate Breakfast Casserole
- 4 cups cubed bread, I used homemade white bread
- 1/2 c. butter, melted
- 2 c. cheese, I used Mexican blend
- 8 eggs
- 1-1/2 cups milk
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 pound bacon, fried and chopped
- Salt and pepper to taste
Spray a 3 quart or 13x9 inch casserole dish with nonstick spray. Spread cubed bread in pan. Toss with melted butter. Now toss with cheese. Combine eggs, milk and sour cream, and salt and pepper to taste. Go light on the salt...bacon is already salty. Pour over bread cubes, pushing the cubes down slightly to be sure all pieces are wet. Sprinkle chopped bacon over the top. Cover casserole with aluminum foil and bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 15 minutes. If you like vegetables for breakfast, you could easily toss in diced onion and green peppers with the eggs before pouring over the bread. You could really add anything you want.
