Ingredients

• 6 to 10 large eggs • 2 to 3 cups grated cheddar cheese • 6 slices day-old bread, cut into 3/4-inch to 1-inch-wide cubes • 2 cups milk • Salt • Pepper • Add-ins, as desired (e.g. 1 cup cooked sausage, 1 cup cubed ham, 1/2 cup broccoli, 1/2 cup mushrooms, 1/4 cup green onions, 1/4 cup cooked onions, 1 cup corn, a few slices of cooked and chopped bacon)

Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 2

Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Mix in the milk and cheese.

Step 3

Add the bread and carefully stir until all pieces of bread are moistened (don't over mix or the bread may disintegrate).

Step 4

Add salt and pepper to taste (if using Italian sausage, you won't need either.) If you have a lot of additions, you might need a couple more eggs to make sure that everything is at least touching some egg mixture. Just whisk in 2 tablespoons of milk for every beaten egg you add.

Step 5

Butter a 9x13-inch casserole dish. Pour the mixture into the casserole dish.

Step 6

Bake in a 350°F oven for 50 minutes to an hour, until the top is browned and the center springs back when touched.

Step 7

Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
