Original recipe yields 8 servings

Directions

  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  3. Melt butter in the microwave, or in a small pan on the stove over low heat. Spray a 9x12 inch baking dish with vegetable spray. Place croutons in the bottom of the dish, and drizzle with melted butter. Sprinkle with grated Cheddar cheese.
  4. Crack the eggs into a bowl, whisking to break up the yolks. Add milk, peppers, mustard, salt, and pepper, and beat until well-combined. Pour over the croutons and cheese, and sprinkle with crumbled bacon.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to stand 10 minutes before serving.

I prepared two of these casseroles and used flavored croutons. I prepared one and immediately baked it and the other I let sit over night. The one that sat over night was superior by far! It had a ton more flavor. I also chose to add a little more milk and a few extra eggs to the one I let sit overnight. Also added extra cheese. You can never have enought cheese.

Ok, here goes. I love, love, love this, however, my family is trying to eat healthier so I made some changes. First I omitted the butter entirely and used 1 egg plus 1 1/2 cups Egg Beaters. I used half regular cheese and half fat free cheese, fat free croutons and 1/2 C lower sodium, real bacon bits. I prepared it the night before and cooked for about an hour in a 9x13 pan and did not adjust the milk at all. It turned out wonderful (not soggy) and this altered version is so much healthier. I got 8 servings and froze some so I coukd just pull them out of the freezer and reheat in the microwave for a midweek breakfast. They reheated wonderfully in the microwave. Thank you so much!

I am testing out brunch recipes for the party I am having New Year's Eve and husband and I both agreed that this was very good. I chose this one over the other bacon/sausage casseroles because of the ingredients that I felt would give it more flavor......i.e. the flavored croutons and mustard. What a great touch! I used caesar salad croutons since thats what I had. I halved the recipe, however, since it was just hubby and I and made it in an 8x8 pan. Perfect for half the ingredients, which leads me to agree with another reviewer.....if making the full recipe in a 9x13, you should do 1.5 times the recipe, otherwise it will be a bit flat. At first I thought the bacon was too much, even at 6 slices for halved recipe, but it was perfect! I used red pepper since hubby doesn't like green.......has a very nice presentation and slices up well. Oh I still had to cook the full 40 min. even though I halved the recipe. Very tasty! Thanks for sharing. Unless I find a better one, this will make an appearance at the party.
