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.
