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.
My Son loves this with Maple syrup over the top before he eats it. It is like a super French toast. Yum!
Fantastic meal!~ My hubby absolutely loved it and that's all I need to hear :) I was leary on adding a whole teaspoon of ground mustard, but was pleasantly surprised! I added 1/4 teaspoon black pepper to the raw egg mixture ... I was out of shredded cheese so I used 6 cheddar cheese slices and topped that with Parmesan cheese ~ delish! oh yeah, I didn't realize we were to place the dish in the refrigerator overnight, so I let it sit for one hour and then baked it for 50 minutes.
this looks like a 5 star recipe, did not make it yet! when i do ill let you know how it came out!! looks so good!! thanks for the recipe!
Delicious! I made homemade French bread in my bread machine a couple of days before making the casserole, and it was amazing in this. Also, I used half a sliced onion (caramelized along with the bacon), one cup of cream, 1/4 cup cream cheese, a tablespoon prepared mustard and the rest milk - my goodness. I blended the mustard, milk, cream, cream cheese and eggs with my immersion blender for smoothness. Super rich, but absolutely wonderful.
I followed the recipe completely. There was not enough to sufficiently fill the recommended pan size as a result it didn't have a good appearance. So many people seem satisfied and I can't figure out what happened to mine.
These Casseroles are good!
Delicious! The only critique I can make is that I think the bacon gave it enough salt and I didn't think it really needed the added salt the recipe calls for. I would omit the extra salt next time. Other than that, it was simple to make and tasted great for our Christmas brunch!
