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.
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.

- 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.
