Breakfast casseroles are one of our all-time favorite brunch foods. Assemble this hearty dish the night before, and bake the next morning. For more recipes like this, see our complete collection of breakfast and brunch recipes.
1 (16-ounce) Hawaiian bread loaf, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
Arrange bread cubes in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and crumbled bacon.
Whisk together eggs, milk, salt, pepper, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Pour over prepared dish; press down bread cubes with a spoon to allow bread to soak up liquid. Cover and chill 8 hours. Let stand 30 minutes before baking.
Bake at 350° for 35 minutes or until set and golden. Serve with salsa or sliced fresh tomatoes.
Note: Hawaiian bread may be found in the deli section of supermarket. Ten to 12 white bread slices, cubed, may be substituted for Hawaiian bread.
Made this over the weekend for friends. One thought the Hawaiian rolls were a bit too sweet. She suggested a jalapeno bread instead. Served it with a fresh medium spicy salsa. The other friend liked it as is. I also added a little more bacon. Trader Joe's has bacon ends and bits for $3/pound - perfect for a casserole.
While others say it's too sweet, I find the Hawaiian Sweet rolls were great for this! My husband and I enjoyed this thoroughly, and we'll be making it again when the stored portions run out! Also, this first time I made it, I used turkey bacon, because that's what I grabbed and thawed first, and it was still pretty amazing! Next week - pork bacon!
This is our favorite breakfast (and any meal) casserole ever! The Hawaiian bread is the key. I've also made it several times with hot sausage instead of bacon, and we like that even more. For those who think it's too gooey, you could simply bake it before it "sets" for 8 hours in the fridge. Just chill it for an hour or two and then bake it. But we love it when it's set overnight and baked in the morning. A must-try!
I used white bread instead of Hawaiian bread. Didn't find anything special about the recipe. In fact, I found it overly gooey in places. It's highly probably that the problem is from user error rather than the recipe itself. :-)
Quick and easy. It was great putting this together the night before and only having to pop it in the oven in the morning. So delicious and would be great for a Sunday breakfast or for company. I didn't and wouldn't change a thing. The salsa took away from the dish and I didn't use it with the second helping. You really could make this dish your own with a number of ingredients.
Best egg casserole I've ever made. The Hawaiian bread makes the difference! We have a new Christmas morning tradition with this recipe but it's also going to be a weekend standard around our house. Everybody loved it!
