9×13 baking pan
Directions: Cut off all the crusts of the bread. You won’t need it for this recipe, but save it and make it into breadcrumbs!
Spray or butter your 9×13 baking pan and place down a layer of bread, about 8 pieces. You may need to cut them to cover the entire bottom of the pan. Next begin layering. Add the meat into one layer. Then the cheese slices. Place another layer of bread on top. (I used cubes of French bread because I needed to get rid of some dry bread!). Finally pour the entire mixture of eggs and milk on top of the bread.
At this point you would want to cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. This will allow the egg mixture to soak into all the bread. If you need to bake right away you can. Do allow it 30 – 60 minutes to rest before baking.
Before baking top the casserole the the cornflakes followed by the stick or melted butter drizzled over the cornflakes. Preheat the oven to 375 and bake for approximately 45 minutes. Remove from oven and allow it to rest 5-10 minutes to completely set. This is best served hot but can easily be heated up and makes great leftovers!
