Amish folks love their breakfast! And the only thing better than a hearty, mouth-watering hot breakfast is one you can make the night before and pop into the oven when you get up. Talk about a wonderful wake-up call, when your family smells this!
12 slices of bread, any variety
1-1/2 pounds sausage, fried and drained
1 lb. bacon, fried and crumbled, divided
12 slices of sandwich cheese, any variety
1 small onion, chopped
3 C. milk
1 tsp. salt, other seasonings to taste
1 C. crushed corn flakes or similar cereal
2 T. butter or margarine
Grease/spray a 9×13” pan. Put 6 slices of the bread on the bottom, then 6 slices of the cheeses, and cover evenly with the sausage and bacon (save back about ½ C.). Top with the remaining cheese slices and chopped onion, then with the other 6 slices of bread, like you’re making sandwiches. Beat the eggs with the milk, salt and other seasonings (pepper, dill, parsley are good) and pour evenly over the sandwiches. Mix the cereal, butter, and remaining bacon and scatter this over the top. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake at 325º, uncovered, about 50 minutes or until firm. Dig in!
Kitchen Hint: Why only enjoy this for breakfast? If you make it in the morning, it’ll be a wonderful-gut supper! Make a skillet of fried apples while it bakes, and you’ll be set!
