Christmas Eve Brunch Casserole

Ever since my brother and I have lived in the city, we’ve moved our Petersen Annual Christmas Eve morning celebration here as well. I host our fam for presents and Christmas Eve Brunch.

Christmas Eve morning has been a tradition all of my 26 years and it’s the only time throughout the Christmas season where we celebrate just us 4

This year I’m more excited than ever to host as I’m going to put a new spin on our traditional Egg Casserole recipe — adding bacon!



  • 8 slices white bread (buttered and cut in cubes)
  • ½ lb. American cheese (grate)
  • 3 c. milk
  • 6 well-beaten eggs
  • ¾ tsp. dry mustard
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • Some onion (diced)
  • 10 pieces Bacon (cooked and crumbled)


  1. Alternate bread, bacon and cheese in buttered casserole dish.
  2. Mix all other ingredients together.
  3. Pour milk and egg mixture over.
  4. Let stand in refrigerator overnight.
  5. Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees.

Serves 6.

I apologize for no photo but trust me: This recipe does not fail. And it’s so easy.



About thetwentysixthyear

September 6, 2011: I turn twenty-six years old. I live and work in downtown Chicago and really can't complain about too much -- great family, great friends, great life. So this is my personal blog. Experiencing and living my twenty-sixth year. I have no idea what to expect or where I'll be one year from now ... but one thing is certain: I will enjoy the ride.
