Ingredients

  • 1 (16-ounce) Hawaiian bread loaf, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) finely shredded Mexican four-cheese blend
  • 1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled (8 slices)
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salsa or sliced fresh tomatoes

How to Make It

  1. Arrange bread cubes in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and crumbled bacon.

  2. 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.

  3. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes or until set and golden. Serve with salsa or sliced fresh tomatoes.

  4. 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.
