My family really like this recipe. I do not use whole milk in our home we use 1% and although the recipe says no substitutes I did it anyway. I did reduce the milk by 1/2 cup due to whole milk being a big more heavy then mine so it would not be runny. I also used whole wheat bread and it turned out great.

Great "breakfast for dinner" casserole! Made for 4 servings and sprinkled a little extra cheese on top after it came out of the oven. Was nice and light and not over cooked. I made this in a 9-in pie plate and it turned out perfect. Made for I Recommend Holiday Tag.

Did make a couple of changes, but not big ones, I thought ~ I used a nutty, whole grain bread rather than a white bread, & did not cut the crusts off as we like 'em! Also used Hormel's Real Bacon Pieces instead of the regular bacon! AND, the resulting casserole was absolutely delicious! Had a couple of friends for breakfast when this was on the table, & there wasn't much left when we finished! Thanks for posting this great keeper of a recipe!

made this for a shower and it was gone fast. i used a 9x13 pan and am very glad i did bc when it baked up it rose an inch or 2 above the pan and made me worried, but once i took it out of the oven, it deflated a bit and was perfect.

We followed the recipe to a T. We made our own bread to use. The eggs were so light and fluffy, not dried out and hard. Everyone enjoyed it and had seconds. Thanks again for the posting.

this was a VERY good casserole! i made it to take to work, and most of my co-workers really liked it. i loaded it with bacon and some ham i had left over so it gave it great flavor. the only thing that bothered me a bit was the texture...it was a bit "mooshy" to me...but i believe that was my fault due to the type of bread i used. i had a loaf of potato bread handy, which gave it kind of an odd flavor...i should have just used white like the Lainey uses...she knows best! other than the potato bread, the taste was very very good tho, and i will definitely be making another one soon...perhaps even this weekend for the dear boyfriend to try. Thanks Lainey!

I've tried many different breakfast casseroles to serve Christmas morning. This is the best of the 10+ I've tried. I believe the secret is using the whole milk. That is why Lainey says "no substitutes". My family liked it so much we have it cooking again today. NOTE: I use English muffin bread from Publix. I use the whole loaf, crust and all. Makes alot to feed a large family. I keep everything else the same. I just push the pieces down to be sure they all come in contact with the liquid. Lainey, Thanks for sharing this easy, delightful recipe!!!

This was a great way to start the morning. I cut the recipe down a little to make an 8x8 casserole and used canadian bacon within and on top. Smelled wonderful when baking. Turned out yummy!

This casserole was good, but I ran into a little trouble. I used skim milk and found it to be a little runny...maybe I should cook it longer the directed &/or reduce the amt. of milk. Also, I used maple bacon and the syrupy taste was a bad combo with the casserole. I like this recipe and you could use just about any type of cheese and meat you'd like. Next time I'm using sausage...YUM! Thanks Lainey!

I just made this for Christmas breakfast! My whole family loved it! Next time, I might add some veggies - mushrooms, black olives, onion, and green pepper! Thanks for the great recipe! Also - it says that the prep time is over an hour - it only took me about 10 minutes (minus the chilling!).
