This dish has a very interesting texture, like a savory bread pudding. Usually we have this for special occassions like brunch or sometimes for dinner. Serve with sparkling wine and orange juice in a cocktail glass.

I like to beat the eggs and milk with salt, pepper and mustard first. Then I layer cheese & bread in a 3 qt casserole dish . This recipe also works if you make it the day before and cook it in the morning. Perfect to have it all prepared when you wake up! This recipe makes a nice addition for a brunch, perhaps served with bacon or sasuage. source

Ingredients:

  • 8 slices white bread - no crusts
  • 8 oz cheese (cheddar)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 6 eggs beaten
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3/4 tsp dry mustard
  • 2 cups milk

Method:

Beat the eggs and milk with salt, pepper and mustard. Layer bread and cheese in a 3 qt casserole dish and pour the egg mixture over.

Bake in a 350 F degree oven for 30 minutes covered with foil. After that period, remove the foil and cook for another 30 minutes uncovered.

Update: I used both whole-grain white & whole wheat bread, cheddar cheese & I increased the temperature to 375F for the last 30 minutes.
