Last Minute Dinner-Breakfast Casserole!

Do you often have those days where its like 5:00 and you have no idea what you are going to make your family for dinner?  I do ALL the time!  The other day was one of those days.  I had a loaf of French bread that needed to be used up.  I hadn't defrosted any meat and I knew we needed to get some protein.  So, I turned to that amazing quick cooking protein, EGGS, and came up with this yummy breakfast casserole. 

This was made from things I had in my refrigerator and freezer, plus the loaf of bread.  Since I am keeping it real on this blog, I will tell you the bread had a couple spots of mold starting to grow.  I pinched them off and proceeded to use it.  Does that gross you out?  I hope not.  Penicillin is made from mold you know:)  Anyway, I needed to make dinner and I was going to use that bread moldy or not!  It really was just a couple tiny spots.  Please don't stop reading my blog!
So, here is how to make it.  You can use non-moldy bread if you prefer.
Tear up your loaf of French bread into chunks and place in a greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle the chopped bacon evenly over the top.
Mix up the rest of the ingredients, minus the cheese.  Its just eggs, milk, precooked chopped bacon in a bag that I had in the freezer, and some spices.  You could add some onion or peppers or whatever you like in omelets, but my kids wouldn't eat it if I did that.
Whisk it all together and then pour it over the bread.  Press it down with your hand so all the bread gets dunked.  Top with the shredded cheddar cheese (mine was straight from the freezer but yours doesn't have to be).
Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes or until it puffs up and the cheese looks all delicious.
I served it with strawberries, which tasted yummy with it.  If your kids won't eat it you could always put a bit of syrup over the top.
Now THAT is an easy dinner!!











Breakfast Casserole:


  • 1 loaf French bread
  • 1/2-3/4 c. chopped bacon (prepackaged or freshly cooked)
  • 1 c. shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/4c. cream
  • 1/4 c. cold butter, cut into little cubes


Tear your French bread into chunks and place in a greased 9x13 baking dish.  sprinkle chopped bacon evenly over the top. In a mixing bowl, beat together eggs, milk, salt, pepper, cayenne, sugar, and cream with a wire whisk.  Pour over bread and bacon.  Press down on bread to make sure it is all wet with egg mixture.  Top with shredded cheese. Dot the top with butter.

Bake in a 350* oven until it is puffed up and the cheese is browned.


What do you make for a quick and easy dinner?

Also, what do you think of the font I used in this post?  I am looking for a fun font that isn’t hard to read.  Any suggestions?


  1. That looks delicious! Love it! And I totally would have done the same thing with the mold! LOL

  2. Yummmm! I love Brinner! (breakfast + dinner) This looks so good and I think I have all these ingredients!

  3. Looks good! And I love the font... I was wondering how you used this as your main font on blogger!!! How did you do that?!

  4. Desi,
    I used a program called Windows Live Writer. It lets you use any font you have on your computer. There is a tutorial on www.thecutestblogontheblock.com for how to change your font in blogger but it seemed really lengthy to me. Good Luck!

  5. I am not opposed to mold. Ryan has a hard time if cheese gets moldy, but I just tell him that all cheese has mold before it is packaged. Plus, he eats blue cheese and you can't cut the mold off of that - gross! I guess I am fine with mold as long as I can get rid of it.

  6. Yum!! I love breakfast for diner!! If you get a sec, pop on over to Foodie Friday and link up! Oh, and I found you at Blue Cricket Design. :)

  7. Clever girl to come up with a recipe on the fly. My mom used to always chop the mushy/gross parts off of veggies in the fridge and it always grossed me out, but now that I'm the one having to come up with dinner at 5 o'clock, I get it. I try not to do it, but I get it.

    I followed your link from Not Just A Housewife. Thanks for linking up!

  8. That looks yummy (moldy bread and all)! We have breakfast for dinner a lot so I will have to give this a try :)

  9. looks yummy! great way to use up old hamburger and hotdog buns too!

  10. We love having breakfast for dinner! What a great recipe!
