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.
