Sunday Morning Wife Saver For Two
Make-ahead breakfast casserole that's perfect for Sunday brunch or breakfast. Most breakfast casseroles are huge amounts, this one has been scaled to make just two hearty servings so you can enjoy it anytime.
whole wheat bread
crusts removed, reserved to fill in gaps
bacon, canadian style
sliced, peameal or back bacon if possible, or even cooked and drained bacon
minced, or shallot
green bell peppers
red hot pepper sauce
we like 4 or 5 good shots of Frank's Red Hot
for buttering and melting
bran flakes cereal
crushed, or corn flakes
Use a 6 x 8 inch baking dish or other suitably sized casserole dish you may have on hand. Lightly grease the dish with a small amount of butter.
Arrange ½ of the whole wheat bread to cover the bottom of the dish. Add pieces of crusts to fill in any gaps.
Cover bread with cooked back bacon slices or ham slices.
Lay slices of cheddar cheese on top, then cover with slices of bread (to make it like a sandwich).
In a bowl, beat, eggs, salt and pepper.
To egg mixture, add dry mustard, onion, green pepper, Worcestershire sauce, milk and hot pepper sauce.
Mix well then pour evenly over the casserole.
Cover and let it stand in the fridge overnight, or 10 minutes if you want to make it straight away.
In the morning, preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃).
Melt remaining butter (optional) and drizzle over the top.
Cover with crushed bran flakes (or corn flakes).
Bake 45 minutes the 350℉ (180℃) F preheated oven.
Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
This makes two hearty servings. Might be enough to feed 3 if you serve some fruit with breakfast.
