Yield: 8 servings
|1 teaspoon||Salt, garlic|
|1 tablespoon||Dry mustard|
|2 cups||Cheddar, sharp, shredded|
|5 cups||Bread cubes|
|1 can||Onions, french fried|
Preheat oven to 325. Remove crusts from bread, and cut into cubes.
Beat eggs, milk, and seasonings with rotary beater. Stir in bread cubes, cheese and ½ can onions. (To make shrimp bake, stir in 2 cups cleaned cooked shrimp.) Pour into 11-½"x7-½"x1-½" greased baking dish. Top with remaining onions. Bake covered for 45 minutes, then uncover and bake another 15 minutes, until set. Serve immediately.
Sylvia's comments: I used a can of french-fried onions instead of the chopped onion, mixed ½ into the cheese mixture and used ½ to top the casserole. My cheese-crazy kids LOVED it. And I think you could add almost anything to it; it's a basic strata recipe, but the first one I've had come out well.
