‘Tis I – Your King – your “Bacon King” for this morning!!
I have another yummy and easy breakfast treat for you that can “cogitate” in your refrigerator overnight and be popped in the oven the next morning while you do other things – water the lawn, take a hot soakie bath, do your hair and makeup, trim your toenails (yuck), mow the lawn (alright maybe you won’t have time for that), do some laundry – WHATEVER. You make this the night before and get all the work out of the way so you can bake and EAT the next day.
Easy Overnight Bacon and Egg Casserole
- 6 strips Bacon (as usual I say you can do MORE or LESS bacon as you wish!)
- 6 Eggs, lightly beaten
- 3 C. 2% Milk
- Sea Salt, to taste
- Ground Black Pepper, to taste
- 6 C. French Bread, cubed (or any country style bread loaf with a crust)
- 2 C. Shredded Colby and Monterey Jack Cheese
Grease a 9×13″ baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Fry or microwave bacon until crispy. Crumble and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Stir in salt and pepper as needed to taste. Add the French bread cubes, cheese, and bacon, and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Cover dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Next morning just preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake casserole for about 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the casserole comes out clean.
VOILA! Breakfast fit for a King or a Queen (or even those lowly peasants you live with……….).
We have to keep an eye on the kitchen staff around here!!
You don’t want to just be AVERAGE do you???? Heck no – have more bacon!
I shall return next week on location here in the kitchen of Castle Baconia where I shall have yet ANOTHER fabulous baconized recipe to share with you my loyal Baconians!!!!!!
