Cheese Strata

Oh, Mom, why did you never make this when I was around? Olives aside, it looks like a splendid brunch food. Of course, we really didn’t brunch that much. Anyway, this one I may road test myself.

10 slices bread, crust removed, broken or cubed
6 eggs
3 cups milk.
2 TSP chopped parsley
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp salt
2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheese
3 TBS finely chopped onion
Optional: chopped olives, diced ham, chopped bacon

To do:
Beat eggs, milk, and seasonings. Stir in bread cubes, cheese, and onion. (Also ham and/or bacon, I imagine.) Pour into ungreased 9 x 13 pan. Refridgerate (covered) overnight. Preheat oven to 325F. If you want to add olives, sprinkle them on top at this time. Bake for one hour.
