Holiday "Egg Thing" Breakfast

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • Butter all the slices of bread on one side and cube them (1 inch squares are fine, but the size is not important).
  • Butter a large shallow baking dish.
  • Put about half the bread cubes in the dish (evenly distributed in the pan).
  • Sprinkle the cubes with half of the cheeses.
  • Repeat both layers.
  • Combine remaining ingredients and pour over the bread and cheese mixture (may look very liquidy, but it's okay; the bread will soak up the moisture).
  • Refrigerate 8-24 hours before baking (I like this b/c you can make the recipe the night before and just throw it in the oven for breakfast the next day).
  • Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 15 min or until brown (check often: this can be a tricky recipe, and oven temperatures can vary a lot).
  • You could add a lot of different things like sausage, ham, bacon, diced bell peppers, and onions, so if you'd like to add anything just throw it in with the cream mixture.
  • Best served with bacon or ham and coffee.
