Recipe - Bacon & Egg Casserole

This is one of my absolute favorite recipes for breakfast! My family loves it and it's a great casserole for company. I made it for my sister and brother-in-law when they came to visit and it was a huge hit. My family loved it so much, I made it again the next day so they would have some left-overs to have. It keeps great in the fridge and can be heated up easily in the microwave or even wrapped in foil and heated up in the oven, if you prefer. It's just a yummy casserole!

Bacon and Egg Casserole

First you'll need to gather your ingredients. Spray your 9x11 pan with cooking spray. Be liberal with the spray as you don't want to have your egg casserole sticking to the pan!

Measure 2 cups of plain croutons. Normally, I would just get plain croutons, but hubby went shopping and came home with these whole grain croutons. They were just as good and probably better for us. Pour the two cups into the bottom of the 9x11 pan.
 Next measure 2 cups of the garlic croutons. Again, the recipe calls for garlic and cheese, but this huge bag was a bargain at Costco, so I went with the Garlic croutons.
Pour the garlic croutons in with the plain croutons into the 9x11 pan.
Next, you'll need 1/4 cup of butter.
I put the butter in a coffee cup and melt it in the microwave for 30-45 seconds until melted. Then pour the butter over the croutons in the bottom of the 9x11 pan.
Next, crack 8 eggs into a bowl...
add one tablespoon of mustard....
measure 2 cups of milk and pour into the eggs...
then whisk all this together until well blended.
Measure 2 cups of cheddar cheese and pour over the croutons and butter...
Then pour the egg, milk and mustard mixture over the cheese.
Then crumble 10-12 strips of bacon over the top.
Bake in a 325 degree oven for 45 minutes. I like to check the middle with a table knife to make sure it's well done. If the knife comes out clean, it's done!
Yum! I forgot to take a picture before we cut into it, but this just tells you how totally amazing this casserole is.

When I serve this for company, I also made toast made with my homemade bread and I cut up fruit. When my sister and brother-in-law came, I served cantaloupe and watermelon since it's in season. Any fruit would be great, though. If you try the recipe, let me know how you like it!
