Last week I was one of many women to bring in a dish for my MOPS group at our meeting on Tuesday. I didn't want to bring in the same thing I've been bringing for the past two months so I came up with Overnight Delight Egg Casserole which I adapted from a recipe from Kraft. It's simple, delicious and healthier than many other egg casseroles out there. I hope I was able to come at least semi-close to the success of the french toast. The ladies in my small group seemed to enjoy it. I hope you do too!
Overnight Delight Egg Casserole
9 medium eggs
3 cups milk
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 loaf French bread, cut into cubes (approximately 8 cups)
1 (10 oz.) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
12 slices turkey bacon, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup ham, diced
1 (8 oz.) package shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Whisk together eggs, milk and pepper in a large bowl until combined. Add the bread cubes.
Fold in spinach, turkey bacon, ham and 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese until evenly combined. Make sure as much of the liquid in the spinach has been removed as possible to avoid creating a soggy casserole. This can be time consuming but will be well worth the effort!
Spray a 13x9 inch baking dish with cooking spray then pour mixture into dish. Top with remaining cheese.
Cover with foil and stick in the refrigerator overnight or leave the foil off and bake immediately.
Bake for 48 to 50 minutes or until casserole is solid and golden brown.
Look how cute....
