I often make this ahead and refrigerate, then bake just before serving. Add 15 to 20 minutes to cooking time. Panko (Japanese style) or seasoned Italian bread crumbs can be substituted for bread crumbs. Leftover ham works well in place of the bacon. This is great comfort food and good enough to share with companySource: Unknown
