Baked chicken brunch casserole

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
12 slices Day-old white bread; crusts removed
Butter
3 cups Cooked chicken; roughly chopped
½ cup Onion; chopped
1½ cup Cheddar cheese; grated
6 Eggs; beaten
2½ cup Milk
Paprika
Parsley or cherry tomatoes to garnish
Sour cream onion sauce
½ cup Butter or margarine
½ cup Onion; chopped
2 tablespoons Flour
1 cup Light cream

Casserole: Butter a 9x13 inch pyrex dish. Butter one side of each bread slice and place 6 slices in the prepared dish, buttered side down. Layer the chicken, onion and cheese over the bread. Cover the layers with the remaining bread slices, buttered side up.

In a medium bowl, combine the eggs and milk. Pour over the casserole and sprinkle with paprika. Refrigerate overnight. Bake in a 325° oven for 1 to 1 ¼ hours.

Top the cooked casserole with the Sour Cream Sauce and garnish with parsley or cherry tomatoes.

Sour Cream Onion Sauce: In a medium saucepan, cook the onion in the butter until soft, but not browned. Stir in the flour, cream, salt and pepper.

Bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly until blended. Stir in the sour cream until heated thoroughly, but do not boil.
