Deadline Dishes — My Favorite Christmas Recipe!

I know I’m a little late posting Christmas recipes, but there’s still time for you to make this one if you want. The best part about it is that you make most of it on Christmas Eve night then stick it in the fridge, covered until morning. In the morning, do that last little step and put it in the oven. While it cooks, we pop the cork on a bottle of bubbly, make mimosas with orange juice and get to opening presents. By the time it’s done in an hour, the kids and us are hungry and ready for a break from the present opening! And the house smells delicious!

Here’s the recipe for Christmas Morning Wife Saver and I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!


16 slices white bread, crusts 
16 slices Canadian back bacon or 
16 slices sharp cheddar cheese
6 eggs
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/2-1 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 cup minced onion
1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
1-2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
3 cups milk
dash Tabasco
1/2 cup butter
Special K or crushed Corn Flakes


Set 8 pieces of bread into a 9″ x 13″ (23 x 33 cm) buttered, glass baking dish. Cover bread with slices of back bacon. Lay slices of cheddar cheese on top of bacon and then cover with remaining slices of bread to make it like a sandwich.

In a bowl, beat eggs and pepper. To the egg mixture add dry mustard, onion, green pepper, Worcestershire sauce, milk and Tabasco.

Pour over the sandwiches, cover and let stand in fridge overnight. In morning, melt butter, pour over top. Cover with Special K or crushed Corn Flakes.

Bake, uncovered, 1 hour at 350 deg.F (180 deg.C). Let sit 10 minutes before serving.

**Okay, so I change my recipe a little. I don’t use Worcestershire or Tabasco and I use skim milk instead of whole. Even with these adjustments, the recipe still turns out delicious. It’s sort of like every breakfast combined into one. Yum!

I suggest service it with fruit, yogurt, crispy bacon and of course a fresh mimosa!

Happy Holidays! May your holidays be filled with happiness and many blessings! See you in 2013!
