Breakfast Never Fail Strata

From: Donna Wells, a good friend of the family

Ingredients:  (the following ingredients are enough to make one layer)

12 slices of buttered bread, cut into small squares
1/2 lb crisp turkey bacon bacon pieces, crumbled
1/2 cup sautéd mushrooms
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
6 eggs
1 3/4 cups milk
2 tsp mustard
1/4 - 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp onion salt
dash pepper

How To: 

The night before:  On the bottom of a greased 9x13 inch baking dish, spread the bread out evenly.  In a mixing bowl, combine the bacon and mushrooms.  Then sprinkle over the top.  Next, layer the cheese.  In a small mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, mustard, salt, onion salt, and pepper. Pour over the top of the cheese in the baking dish. 

For a second layer, repeat on top.

Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours, ideally overnight. 

In the morning:  Bake uncovered until puffed and golden .  For two layers, bake at 350° for 45-60 minutes.  For one layer, bake at 350° for 30 minutes. 

Side Notes: 

Serves 8-12 people
