Do-Ahead Egg Bake

Where is the time going?!!! We're already into the thick on December and I haven't posted! I've been a slacker... but I'm still cooking and I promise that I'll keep the recipes coming! Heres a fast "do-ahead" breakfast that might be a good one for when company comes. I love any breakfast you can make the night before. This is a good one for a big crowd- it makes a monstrous batch- we had A LOT of left-overs. I think if I make it again for our family, I will just make half. It was pretty good though- spinach can be tough to disguise. :)

Do-Ahead Egg Bake (
8 eggs
3 cups milk
8 cups French bread cubes (3/4 inch)
1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, squeezed dry
12 slices Bacon, cooked, crumbled
1 pkg. (8 oz.) Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese, divided

WHISK eggs and milk in large bowl until well blended. Stir in bread. Add spinach, bacon and 1-1/2 cups cheese; mix lightly.
POUR into 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; top with remaining cheese. Cover; refrigerate overnight.
HEAT oven to 350ºF. Bake, uncovered, 48 to 50 min. or until top is puffed and golden brown.
