DirectionsPreheat oven to 350 degrees.
Coat a casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.Cube approximately 2C. day old (stale) bread and place in casserole dish. (I used 3 whole grain english muffins that were drying out)Melt margarine in microwave and pour over cubed bread and lightly season with garlic powder.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes till it starts to get golden brown. (Make it quicker: broil for 5 minutes - watch it closely so it doesn't scorch)Meanwhile get the egg mixture into a mixing bowl and scramble well. Set aside.
*dried thyme or sweet basil works in this too...Chop veggies & meats (my combo was baby spinach, chopped broccoli, mushrooms, green onion, deli ham & sausage)After bread bcomes browned pour egg mixture over it and top with 1/4 shredded cheese, all the veggie & meat mixture, then another 1/4 cheese & finally frozen hash browns (season if desired).
Bake for 30 minutes.
*to crisp up hashbrowns broil for last 5 minutes or pre fry on stovetop*Remove casserole from oven and top with remaining cheese blend (my combo was colby jack & pepper jack)
bake for 5 minutes to melt cheese then let stand on stovetop for 5 minutes.
Cut into squares and serve immediately.
Great for Brunch or even a lighter dinner.
