Updated Aug 19, 2008

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 3 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled and coarsely chopped (3 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 4 cups cubed firm bread
  • 1 pound bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (8 ounces)
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 5 eggs

Steps

  • 1
    Grease 2-quart casserole. In 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Cook apples in butter 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender. Stir in brown sugar; reduce heat to low. Cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender.
  • 2
    Layer half each of the bread, bacon, apples and cheese in casserole. Repeat with remaining bread, bacon, apples and cheese.
  • 3
    Mix all remaining ingredients; pour over cheese. Cover tightly and refrigerate at least 2 hours but no longer than 24 hours.
  • 4
    Heat oven to 350°F. Bake uncovered 40 to 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    There's no need to remove the crusts from the bread. Also, purchase the cheese already shredded in an 8-ounce package.
  • tip 2
    Layer 2 medium green onions, thinly sliced, with the bread, bacon, apples and cheese.
