Caramelized Onion Breakfast Casserole
Ingredients
4
strips bacon
1
sweet onion, halved and thinly sliced
2
cups broccoli florets
5
eggs
1 1/3
cups milk
1/2
teaspoon dried basil, crushed
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon ground black pepper
4
cups crusty sourdough bread, cut in 1/4-inch cubes
4
ounces Muenster or Swiss cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
Directions
  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Transfer bacon to plate lined with paper towels to drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings in the skillet. Crumble bacon; set aside. Add onion to skillet; cover and cook over medium-low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover and cook over medium heat until caramelized, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, cook broccoli in a small amount of lightly salted water for 3 minutes; drain.
  2. In a large bowl combine eggs, milk, basil, salt and pepper. Stir in bread cubes, broccoli, caramelized onion, cheese, and crumbled bacon. Transfer to a 2-quart baking dish. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Bake casserole, covered, for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake 20 to 30 minutes more or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
