Saturday in the Castle – that means BACON!
Good morning fans of bacon. Got a good one for you this morning even though we’ve done our share of bacon casseroles – this is just a little different. It’s also VERY yummy.
“CHARLESTON BREAKFAST CASSEROLE”
INGREDIENTS: (MAKES EIGHT SERVINGS – GREAT FOR A GROUP OR SPECIAL OCCASION OR FOR TWO STARVING PEOPLE!)
12 slices bacon
1/4 cup butter, melted
3 cups croutons
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
6 large eggs
1-3/4 cups milk
1 bell pepper (any color) diced
1 tablespoon mustard (any type will do)
1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste
- Step 1
Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
- Step 2
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
- Step 3
Melt butter in the microwave, or in a small pan on the stove over low heat. Spray a 9×12 inch baking dish with vegetable spray. Place croutons in the bottom of the dish, and drizzle with melted butter. Sprinkle with grated Cheddar cheese.
- Step 4
Crack the eggs into a bowl, whisking to break up the yolks. Add milk, peppers, mustard, salt, and pepper, and beat until well-combined. Pour over the croutons and cheese, and sprinkle with crumbled bacon.
- Step 5
Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to stand 10 minutes before serving.
