I Have Brunch on the Brain!

Maybe it's the weather, I don't know.  I looked at recipes all weekend, because it was too cold to go outside.  Here is a recipe that will feed a crowd (8 servings) and it's another make-ahead concoction. I don't know the source, unforunately.

Breakfast Casserole

White bread                                                                  Package of Canadian bacon
Cheddar cheese or 1/2 chedder, 1/2 pepper jack          6 eggs
1/2 tsp. salt                                                                   1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. dry mustard                                                      1/4 c. minced onion
1/4 c. minced green pepper                                           2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
3 c. whole milk                                                              Dash of Tabasco or to taste
1/2 c. butter                                                                  1 c. bread crumbs or cereal, crushed

Butter bottom of 9 x 13 casserole dish and line with bread slices with crust removed. Layer with Canadian bacon (cut in about 1/2" pieces) and shredded cheese. Top with another layer of bread slices. Beat eggs and seasonings with milk, onion, and green pepper. Pour evenly over bread slices. Cover and refrigerate overnight. 

In the morning, melt butter and pour over top of casserole and top with cereal and bake in preheated oven (350 degrees) for 1 hour or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let sit for ten minutes before serving.  Pork sausage or ham may be substituted for the Canadian bacon. Green chilies or spinach may also be added to the egg mixture.
