Ingredients
  1. 6 eggs
  2. 2 cups milk
  3. 1 tsp salt
  4. ¼ tsp white or black pepper
  5. 1 pound bacon
  6. 2 cups cheddar cheese
  7. 6 large English muffins
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray an 9x9 inch baking pan with canola oil.
  3. Cook the bacon until a little browned but not crispy. Remember we are going to bake this in the oven too!
  4. Slice a sliver of the top of the english muffin.
  5. Dip both sides of the english muffin in bacon grease (totally optional, or you can use butter if you would like) and cut into 1 inch chunks.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until crispy.
  7. While the English muffins are baking, cut bacon into chunks.
  8. Mix the eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a bowl or measuring cup.
  9. Lay the sliced edges of the muffins down first (this makes for a nice crispy bottom) and then add the chunks of english muffins.
  10. Add the egg mixture over the bread chunks and sprinkle on the bacon and cheese.
  11. Bake uncovered for 35-40 minutes or until browned.
  12. Wait about 5-10 minutes before cutting.
  13. Enjoy with maple syrup or even ketchup
Notes
  1. As we were eating our way through the entire pan it occurred to me how to make it slightly more authentic. Take 6 eggs (remember this is 9 servings, and uses a total of 12 eggs) and cook them until slightly (just crack into the pan and mix ever so slightly, but where it is still distinctly egg white and egg yolk separate) cooked but still a bit runny in some putter in a frying pan. Spoon them over the bread cubes but before the bacon and eggs. Then you’ll get the authentic egg white flavor too! Look for this in the instructions in the sausage bake.
