Cheesy Bacon and Egg Slice
« on: January 02, 2016, 01:03:03 am »
We call this one Dads Breakfast as DH makes it.  It's our go to special breakfast for birthdays and Christmas.
It is prepared the night before and baked in the morning.  It is like a savoury bread and butter pudding.

From Best recipes from the weekly, a woman's weekly cook book.

Cheesy Bacon and Egg Slice

1/2 loaf unsliced white bread
125g grated cheddar cheese
5 rashers bacon
3 shallots ( I use spring onions)
1 green capsicum
6 eggs
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon dry mustard powder
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
Pepper
1/2 teaspoon dry basil leaves
1 red capsicum

Trim the crusts from the bread, cut bread into 2.5cm cubes and place in a single layer in the bottom of a buttered ovenproof dish. Sprinkle with grated cheese. Dice bacon and fry until crispy, drain and place over cheese then top with shallots and green capsicum.
Whisk eggs with milk, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, mayonnaise, pepper and basil.  Pour over bread then sprinkle with chopped red capsicum. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Next day bake uncovered in a moderate oven for 50 to 60 minutes.  A little longer if best so that it is firm in the middle. This serves 6.  We usually double and cook in a very large dish.

This is a great recipe Bedlam. I have been making this for a long time. Perfect for picnics as well since it tastes just as good cold.

That's a great idea Denise and would be perfect if you're having people to brunch as well.

Haven't thought of eating it cold Courton.  I prefer to have everything prepared before entertaining and this is perfect for that.

I've made this Bedlam. It is very nice.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

We had this as a special treat for Sunday breakfast. It's very nice thanks Denise.  I loved the way all the work was done the night before. All I had to do was put it in the oven and go back to bed until it was ready
