Christmas Morning Breakfast
16 slices white organic bread (crust removed)
2 lbs. thinly sliced turkey ham
16 slices old cheddar cheese
¼ cup chopped green onion
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
½ tsp. dry mustard
½ tsp. pepper
3 cups whole milk
½ cup melted butter and crushed Corn Flakes
Place 8 slices of bread in a buttered glass baking dish. Cover with slices of turkey ham and the cheddar cheese. Cover that layer with remaining 8 slices of bread.
In a large bowl beat well together eggs, mustard, onion, Worcestershire sauce, milk and pepper. Pour over bread mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, melt butter, pour over casserole and top with crushed Corn Flakes. Bake at 350F for about 70 minutes or until knife comes out clean. Cut into squares and serve hot. Serves 8.
This is a Froese family tradition that goes back many years. It is very easy to make and best of all, it’s made a day ahead and just needs to be baked in the oven Christmas morning. We like to serve it with fresh fruit, breakfast sausages, and champagne and orange juice. For a nice treat, my family enjoys topping it with maple syrup.
