  • Summary

    Recipe video above. Strata, breakfast casserole, savoury French toast bake or savoury bread pudding. It doesn't matter what you call this, it's totally delish and can be made ahead, so it's great for feeding a crowd! It tastes like a cross between a quiche, French toast and an omelette.Excellent use of leftover bread, and also to make less bacon stretch further. Also customisable - imagine all the add in possibilites! See in post for some ideas.

    Ingredients

    • 300g / 10 oz bacon (, diced (or ham))
    • 6 large eggs
    • 1 1/4 cups milk ((full cream or low fat))
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • Black pepper
    • 7 cups (packed) any plain bread (I use baguettes) (, cut into 2 cm / 1 inch cubes (preferably slightly stale, Note 1))
    • 2 cups cheese (, shredded (Note 2))
    • parsley (, finely chopped (garnish - optional))
