Another one from the Penzey's Spices catalog. A great way to use that stale bread. I like to add a diced, sauteed onion to this.

This was great. I needed a recipe like this for a Jewish organization brunch meeting, so I couldn't use the bacon. Instead, I subbed 1 lb of frozen hash brown potatoes to give it a little substance. I made two pans, one plain and one with some added mushrooms and onions. Both were great but I liked the one with the onion/mushroom mixture better. Next time I think I want to try it without the potatoes, or with only 1/2 lb per pan so it is more bread than potatoes...but I don't think you can go wrong with this basic recipe.

I made this for the moms at my child's preschool. It was a hit! I added 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/2 tsp cayenne and 1 tsp worchestershire, and I used whole wheat bread. Can't wait to serve to the family! Thanks, Christopher!

Made this today. I did not have any bacon in the house so I took some Ham and Turkey lunch meat. I had a 6oz package. I made it according to directions. But I did put it in and 8 by 8 pan and baked it at 350 for about 35 minutes and then I topped it with a little more cheese. Thank you for shaing. It was really good.
