There is really nothing to this recipe and can be put together in just minutes. We use whole grain white bread for the added fiber and nutrition.
 
I mean it already has egg and cheeses but we can pretend it is healthy for us.

Once you layer the bread and the cheeses, make your egg and milk mixture.

That is it. I told you this overnight egg casserole was a breeze. A lot of the liquid will absorb into the bread allowing for a puffy surprise in your oven.
