DIRECTIONS

  • Grease bottom and sides of 9" x 13" glass casserole dish with butter.
  • Tear bread into bite-sized pieces and place in dish, arranging so that they form a fairly solid layer but do not overlap (you may not need the whole loaf).
  • Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a small saucepan; drizzle evenly over bread.
  • Sprinkle grated Swiss and Monterrey Jack cheeses evenly over bread.
  • Top cheese layer evenly with cooked bacon bits.
  • Break eggs into large mixing bowl and beat lightly by hand; add milk, wine, chopped green onion, mustard, black pepper and cayenne, beating again until foamy.
  • Pour egg mixture evenly over casserole; cover tightly with foil, and refrigerate overnight.
  • The following day, remove dish from refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Bake, covered with foil, for approximately 45-50 minutes, until eggs are'set' in the center.
  • Remove from oven and spread sour cream evenly over the top of the casserole; sprinkle with grated Parmesan.
  • Return to oven uncovered; bake an additional 10 minutes or so until lightly-browned.
