Mountain Brunch

8 slices buttered bread, cubed (Use the bread of your choice. I use Sourdough.)

1/2 cup onion, diced

1/4 cup celery, diced

3 green onions, diced

8 eggs, beaten

1 green pepper, diced

4 cups milk

Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

1 4-oz. can mushrooms, drained

Ham, cubed or Bacon or Sausage, crumbled, any amount desired

1 cup Colby cheese, shredded

1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded

Mix together everything but the cheeses and refrigerate over night. Before baking, sprinkle cheeses over the top. Bake in a skillet or a 9"X13" pan for one hour at 400ºF. Serves 4 to 6.

This makes a wonderful Sunday brunch when served with some fresh fruit and a nice bottle of Chardonnay that has been decently chilled. A California Mountain Brunch at its very best!
