Spend just 15 minutes prepping this casserole the night before, and you’ll have extra time to make a fruit salad and pour the coffee as it bakes. It’s a keeper! —Patricia Nieh, Portola Valley, California

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf (8 ounces) day-old French bread, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 6 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup minced chives, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese, divided

Directions

  1. Arrange half of the bread slices in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, mustard, salt, pepper and 1/4 cup chives.
  2. Pour half of the egg mixture over bread; sprinkle with 1 cup cheese. Layer with remaining bread and egg mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Sprinkle with remaining chives.
