Author's Notes

Can be prepared the night before for a hassle-free breakfast or brunch! Just take it out of the fridge about 15 minutes before baking to allow to come to room temperature.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Arrange two racks evenly spaced in the oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and generously grease the bottom and sides a 9x13x2-inch baking dish with the Unsalted Butter (1 Tbsp).
step 2
Place an ovenproof baking rack on a sheet pan and place the Bacon (12 slices) in a single layer on the rack. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the bacon, has begun to brown. If you don't have a rack, just place the bacon directly on the sheet pan.
step 3
Remove the pan and carefully brush the strips of bacon with Maple Syrup (2 Tbsp). Return the pan to the oven and bake for another 5 minutes, until golden brown.
step 4
Remove the bacon and allow to drain on a plate lined with a paper towel. When cool enough to handle, roughly chop the bacon and set aside.
step 5
Meanwhile, cut the English Muffins (6) into 1-inch cubes (don't worry about cutting them in half them first). Spread the cubes on a sheet pan and bake, with the bacon, for 15 minutes, until lightly browned.

step 6
While the bacon and English muffins are in the oven, whisk together the Farmhouse Eggs® Large Brown Eggs (12), Whole Milk (2 1/2 cups), Kosher Salt (1 tsp), and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (3/4 tsp) in a large bowl.
step 7
To assemble, sprinkle half of the bacon, Fresh Chives (1 1/2 Tbsp), and 1 cup of the Sharp Cheddar Cheese (3/4 cup) in that order, onto the bottom of the baking dish. Add the English muffin cubes on top in one even layer.

step 8
Carefully pour the egg mixture into the pan, pressing down lightly to make sure all the muffin cubes are moistened. Top with remaining bacon, Sharp Cheddar Cheese (3/4 cup) and Fresh Chives (1 1/2 Tbsp). Wrap well and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or overnight.
