My mom got this recipe at a women's club potluck dinner: The ladies would write up recipe cards for the dishes they prepared, and everyone would leave the potluck with a stack of new recipes for their collections. Ever since then, Mom has made this almost every Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Once or twice she decided to substitute something else, and she never heard the end of it. She loves that you set it up the day before and just bake it on serving day. - Bob Hoebee, Recipe Developer

Ingredients

Directions

Butter the bread slices on both sides (use the whole stick), then cut them into 3/4-inch squares. (Leave the crust on.)

Beat the eggs in a large bowl until foamy, then gradually whisk in the milk.

Alternate layers of bread and Cheddar in a low 2-quart oval baking dish, starting with the bread and ending with Cheddar (4 layers total). Pour in the egg mixture, and press the bread and Cheddar down into the egg. Refrigerate overnight, covered, so the bread soaks up the liquid.

About 1 1/2 hours before serving, position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F. Bake until puffed, golden and cooked through, about 1 hour. Serve hot or warm.
