  1. Melt 5 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute bacon crumbles and onion in hot butter until onion is tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Add eggs; cook and stir until eggs are starting to set but are still moist, about 5 minutes.
  2. Melt 5 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisk flour into butter to form a thick paste. Add milk, Cheddar cheese, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until cheese is melted and sauce is thick, 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Stir seasoned stuffing mix and 1/4 cup melted butter together in a bowl.
  4. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  5. Stir eggs and cheese sauce together in a bowl; pour into prepared baking dish and spread stuffing mixture over the top. Cover the baking dish with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator, 8 hours to overnight.
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove plastic wrap from baking dish.
  7. Bake casserole in the preheated oven until heated through and set, about 30 minutes.

I halved this recipe to take to a work meeting today and decided to make it the day before then just heat up in the microwave at work before serving. I didn't let it sit overnight or for 8 hours and it seemed fine. It's a bit time intensive and uses a lot of dishes but my coworkers loved it--several went back for seconds. I didn't have stuffing mix but just cubed half a loaf of bread, tossed in some seasoning, and called it good. Worked well, and it is relatively easy for all the steps. I thought it was pretty good. Thanks for the recipe.
