My dad’s wife Julie made this unbelievably decadent breakfast for us one Christmas many years ago and we all fell in love with it. It is like a breakfast lasagna with ham and cheese.
16 slices white bread, crust removed
8 slices ham
8 slices cheese
3 cups milk
½ tsp salt
½ tsp dry mustard
1 tsp Worcestershire
¼ cup onions
¼ cup green peppers (I don’t generally include these)
½ cup butter – melted
In lasagne dish put a layer of bread, then a layer of ham, a layer of cheese. Repeat.
Mix remaining ingredients except butter and Special K.
Pour over bread, ham and cheese.
Cover and chill overnight.
In the morning sprinkle with special K.
Melt butter and pour over top.
Cover with aluminum foil.
Cook in a 350° oven for 1 hour.
Let stand for 10 minutes.
Even Reg loves this treat and when he asked why don’t we eat this more often? I told him, “Because it’s a cholesterol bomb!”
Still… Once a year and OMG! Truly a foodie wonder to behold. Prep it on Christmas Eve, throw it in the oven on Christmas morning an hour later you will have a breakfast of champions.
