I love caramelized onions and I love new ideas for breakfast. This new-to-me breakfast recipe was the perfect find.
This casserole is substantial enough for lunch or dinner if you don't care for a big breakfast.
Caramelized Onions Breakfast Casserole
4 strips bacon
1 onion, sliced thin
2 cups broccoli
1 1/3 cups milk
1/2 tsp basil
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
4 cups bread cubes (a crusty sourdough is perfect)
4 oz. Swiss cheese (or whatever kind of cheese you prefer)
In skillet, fry bacon. Remove bacon and crumble. In drippings, cook onion on medium-low for about 15 minutes until nice and browned. In a pan, cook broccoli until almost tender.
In bowl, combine eggs, milk, and seasonings. Stir in bread, brocolli, onion, cheese, and bacon. Transfer to greased 9x9 baking dish. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours.
Bake covered casserole in 350 oven for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake 20 minutes longer or until knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve.
