Here’s a recipe that my friend Michelle introduced me to at the lake last summer. It was a delicious way to feed a pile of us hungry campers breakfast. I also plan to make it for Christmas morning coming up. The best part is that you can make it in advance and put it in the fridge, or freeze it. Then, just thaw and bake.
Christmas Morning Wifesaver
Superb! Make the day before and pop in the oven in the morning. Serves 8.
16 slices white bread, crusts
16 slices Canadian back bacon or
16 slices sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp. pepper 2 mL
1/2-1 tsp. dry mustard 2-5 mL
1/4 cup minced onion 60 mL
1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper 60mL
1-2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce 5-10 mL
3 cups milk 750 mL
1/2 cup butter 125 mL
Special K or crushed Corn Flakes
Set 8 pieces of bread into a 9″ x 13″ (23 x 33 cm) buttered, glass baking dish. Cover bread with slices of back bacon. Lay slices of cheddar cheese on top of bacon and then cover with remaining slices of bread to make it like a sandwich. In a bowl, beat eggs and pepper. To the egg mixture add dry mustard, onion, green pepper, Worcestershire sauce, milk and Tabasco. Pour over the sandwiches, cover and let stand in fridge overnight. In morning, melt butter, pour over top. Cover with Special K or crushed Corn Flakes. Bake, uncovered, 1 hour at 350 deg.F (180 deg.C). Let sit 10 minutes before serving. Serve this with fresh fruit and hot cinnamon rolls.
