Start The Day Off Right With This Yummy Breakfast Casserole

To surprise my kids on their birthdays, I usually make this casserole for them in the morning. It just sets the mood for the whole day as a good one. I guess it’s probably not much of a surprise anymore seeings as I have been doing it for so long now. They just come to expect it. I know which child likes each different mix that I make up too. Swap out your meats, cheeses, and veggies to find out which is your favorite combination… they are endless!

People will think you’re a professional chef when you pull this big casserole out of the oven!



1 stick Land O’ Lakes butter, melted and divided

16 slices white bread or challah, crusts removed

16 slices very thinly sliced Canadian bacon or ham

16 slices Kraft cheddar cheese

6 eggs

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

2-4 drops Tabasco sauce, to taste

Fresh ground black pepper

3 cups milk

1/4 cup each diced red and green bell pepper

1/4 cup finely chopped green onion

2 cups lightly crushed Kellogg’s corn flakes




Melt butter and brush inside a 9 x 13-inch casserole liberally with some of it.
Assemble 8 “sandwiches” of bread, meat, cheese, bread and fit them into the casserole in one layer. Brush the top layer with some of the melted butter.
In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with the Worcestershire sauce, salt, mustard and peppers.  Whisk in the milk and pour over the bread layers in the casserole.  Sprinkle the top with red and green peppers and green onion.  Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight to absorb the custard mixture.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the remaining butter (you may have to re-melt) with the crushed cereal. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the casserole and bake for 1 hour until the center is set. Let stand for at least 10 minutes before cutting into squares to serve.






Quick Tip: Try it with sausage!
