When my four sons, one daughter and their families come to visit this egg dish is devoured in a hurry...even if I double it! The Swiss cheese is a nice change from the usual cheddar cheese.


  • 2 cups soft bread cubes (crusts removed)
  • 1-3/4 cups whole milk
  • 8 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled


  1. In a large bowl, combine bread cubes and milk; let stand 5 minutes. Drain, reserving excess milk. Place bread in a greased 8-in. square baking dish; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, salt, pepper and reserved milk. In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add egg mixture; cook and stir until set. Spoon over bread cubes. Top with cheese.
  3. Melt remaining butter; add bread crumbs. Sprinkle over cheese. Top with bacon. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight.
  4. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.
