This is a delicious recipe that I found on the internet, but then adjusted for my own taste. It is so good that it is a hit with adults and children too!
First, grease up a 13x9" pan.
Then you cube up about 8 slices of bread (crust too!) to cover the bottom of the pan in an even layer.
Next, sprinkle anything you want on top. I use a package of hot sausage (pre-cooked), bacon bits, a lot of cheese, diced onions, and feel free to use leftovers! One time I added some extra ham deli meat cuts and some cut up left-over seasoned french fries from the night before. It was delicious! Sort of a hash brown effect with the fries. :)
Finally, beat 12 eggs, 2 cups of milk, with salt and pepper (or season to taste, I like garlic salt) and pour over the top. Let sit as long as you can, at least 15 minutes or even refrigerate it overnight, and bake at 325 degrees for about 60 minutes. If you refrigerate it, let it sit for about 10-15 minutes to come back up to room temperature.
Start checking it at 45 minutes and when it looks golden brown and stops jiggling, it is done.
