How to make it

  • Cover the bottom of a well-buttered 9x13 glass baking dish with bread cubes (using glass will give you a golden, crunchy crust).
  • Top bread with cubed meat.
  • Sauté veggies in butter until crisp-tender, then spread them over the meat layer.
  • Drop spoonfuls of mayonnaise over the veggies, then with the back of the spoon, gently spread the mayonnaise over the top of veggies.
  • Lay cheese slices (or grated cheese) over mayonnaise layer.
  • Mix together eggs, milk, soup, seasoning; pour over cheese layer.
  • Cover dish tightly with saran and foil; refrigerate overnight.
  • BEFORE BAKING, remove saran and re-cover pan with foil only!
  • Bake uncovered, at 350 degrees, for 1 hour.
  • Remove from oven and top with the final layer.
  • For final layer, top casserole with crushed croutons and drizzle with butter. Bake another 10 to 15 minutes. Allow casserole to set for 10 minutes before cutting into serving pieces.
  • NOTE: If you would like to serve this with a cheese sauce over the top, see Black Jack Melt for the recipe.

    Krum..... this is so delectable...
    Could I replace celery with leeks as I am not fond of celery or would it deter from the amazing flavorer? Perhaps you can't taste the celery if so I could leave it in.
    Thanks for this...

    You say cover with saran and foil, I take it that saran is a US product (cling film) so do you leave the saran on under the foil when you bake it?

    Doesn't the saran melt?
