This recipe is a hybrid. I found two recipes with almost identical ingredients. I liked the one recipe better because I could just put everything in the baking dish without layering. However, it called for it to be refrigerated overnight so that the egg mixture could sink in. I have a full-sized fridge plus two bar fridges but I do so much cooking at Christmas, there simply isn't room to store one more dish. The technique for the second recipe didn't need for the dish to sit overnight, but rather cook it in a hot water bath for a longer period. The end product was a big hit and turned out perfectly cooked and moist. A big time saver for this recipe is using the cut up day old bread that many bakeries sell over the holidays for making stuffing. I was also lucky in that I stumbled across pre-chopped pancetta at Costco, also a big time saver.
