my family loved it but I thought it was ok. We don't keep swiss cheese in the house so that was a special buy that and white bread never passes our threshold unless extreme emergencies but this was tasty fast and easy. I'll keep it around for the next hot ham and cheese craving I have. Read More

First words from my husband, "MMM, it's good isn't it," which tells me a lot because he is fussy. I halved the recipe because it's just the two of us and I used a lightly flavoured whole wheat bread, the end pieces, also substituted Monterey Jack for the Swiss, one percent milk with cereal cream, basically I improvised with what I had on hand. Will make again, the bacon and green onions also sound good. Read More

I love breakfast casseroles like this for using up odds and ends of meat / cheese / bread! I didn't have wonder bread, but used some leftover hamburger buns and english muffins for the bread portion and a mix of swiss and cheddar jack for the cheese. This is an easy, cheesy, cozy breakfast. I don't usually bother letting my casseroles soak overnight, I prefer the texture of a few bread pieces staying in tact and getting crispy on top! Read More
