Breakfast For Dinner Casserole

Breakfast For Dinner Casserole


*NOTE - this casserole must chill either overnight or for several hours before baking. Throw this sucker together in the morning (it literally takes 5 minutes) and chill while you're at work.

- 10 to 12 slices of bread (brown is best)
- 3 to 4 tbsp Dijon or Honey Mustard (whichever you prefer)
- 1 1/2 cups chopped ham, bacon or turkey (I have even super-short-cut this & used bacon bits!)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 5 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- salt & pepper
- 1/4 cup butter or margerine
- 2 cups Rice Krispies


- butter 4-6 pieces of bread (enough to cover bottom of your dish) and place BUTTERED SIDE DOWN in a large rectangular casserole dish
- spread "upper" side of bread with mustard
- create another "layer" using your ham/bacon/turkey
- create another "layer" using your shredded cheese
- create the top "layer" using the rest of your bread - BUTTERED SIDE UP
- in large bowl whisk together eggs, milk & dash of salt & pepper
- pour mixture evenly over casserole
*Cover and chill overnight or for several hours before baking*

- when ready to bake:
- melt 1/4 cup butter or margerine & add 2 cups Rice Krispies
- spread mixture over casserole
- bake at 350F for approx 1 hour

I have used this recipe as a quick dinner, as well as my tried & true Christmas morning recipe. I prep it the night before, throw it in the oven when the rugrat wakes me at 5am and we have a yummy breakfast while we open our gifts. I know it's July (!!!) but if you do decide to use this at Christmas, the green & red holiday Rice Krispies make it look really festive. :)
