Both sides of our family, in-laws and all, eat this Christmas morning. Mrs. Allen gave this recipe to my parents as a wedding gift, as with all my mom's and my dad's brothers and sisters. It is a true family recipe. This recipe is fantastic because you can prepare the night before, then put it in the oven while, say, opening gifts. No work required the day of.

Directions

  1. Place bacon in a skillet over medium high heat, and cook until evenly brown. Drain, crumble, and set aside.
  2. Spread 1 side of each bread slice with about 1 teaspoon butter. Arrange 1/2 the slices buttered side down in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Layer with the crumbled bacon, 1/2 the Cheddar cheese, and 1/2 the Monterey Jack cheese. Arrange remaining bread slices over the cheese, buttered sides up. In a small bowl, mix the eggs and milk, and pour evenly over bread slices. Top with remaining cheese. Cover, and refrigerate 8 hours, or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Bake the chilled Brunch Bake 1 hour, or until cheese is bubbly and eggs are set.

I made this casserole for a large brunch this morning. Since I made the recipe x4, I added extra eggs and less milk. I also put mushrooms, onions and green peppers between the two layers. It was a hit! Everyone enjoyed it and it was very fluffy and delicious. I would suggest spraying the pan with non-stick cooking spray, as it did stick a little. Also, I cooked it 1/2 hour longer, due to the larger pan and multiplied recipe. Thanks for a nice breakfast dish!

Delicious. Very easy to make and came out wonderful. I made a smaller version with just one layer of bread since it's just me and my boyfriend...Add green peppers and mushrooms and I was in heaven!
