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
1 3/4 cups milk
2 tsp mustard
1/4 - 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp onion salt
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.
Serves 8-12 people
