  • ten slices hearty white sandwich bread
  • twelve ounces cheddar cheese, shredded (three cups)
  • eight large eggs
  • three cups whole milk
  • one small onion, grated
  • one teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Scatter half of bread evenly in prepared dish and sprinkle with half of cheddar cheese. Repeat with remaining bread and cheese. Wish eggs, milk, onion, salt,pepper, mustard, and hot sauce together in a bowl until well combined. Pour eggs mixture evenly over bread and press lightly on bread to submerge. Wrap dish tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least eight hours. Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350 F. Unwrap casserole and bake until puffed and golden, about one hour. Serve immediately. Start to Finish: One hour thirty minutes (plus eight hours chilling time)  VARIATIONS:  24 hour “omelet”with sun dried tomatoes and mozzarella: Substitute mozzarella cheese for  cheddar cheese. Add 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese and 1/2 cup oil packed sun dried tomatoes, patted dry and chopped, between two layers of bread in step one. Sprinkle three tablespoons minced fresh cilantro over top before serving. This cheesy, golden, puffed casserole is all about the eggs. The eggs should be this casserole focus, not the bread, prepared a milk based custard. Buttered white bread, cut into bite size pieces and layered with tangy cheddar cheese in a baking dish,promised to melt right into the custard while so bringing in plenty of richness.A small amount of grated onion ,a bit of dry mustard and hot sauce added just enough complexity to the creamy eggs. Refrigerated assembled omelet overnight melded the flavors and saturated the bread, before bake it. The omelet needs to sit in the refrigerator, well covered, for at least eight hours in order to achieve the desired consistency.
