Eggs Strata

12 slices bread, crusts removed
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
10 strips bacon (or sausage- see below**)
1 cup swiss cheese or cheddar
12 eggs
4 cups milk

more grated cheese for top

Butter both sides of bread and place 6 pieces on bottom of greased 9by13 pan. Saute onions and mushrooms and set aside. Cook bacon till crisp and crumble. Sprinkle half of onion/mushrooms and bacon on top of bread. Sprinkle with half of cheese. Repeat layer. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Next morning bake covered at 350 for 30 minutes covered and 30 minutes uncovered. (I cant remember how long I baked this but it seems far too long as the eggs will become dry)

**I substituted one pound of cooked Jimmy Dean sausage for the bacon.
