Place 4 pieces of bread on the bottom of the dish.

Cover with half of the cheese, and then the bacon, ham, onions, green pepper and mushrooms. Top with remaining cheese and bread. Set aside

Combine eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Mix well.

Pour over bread.

Cover and let stand for 1 hour or overnight.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 1 hour. 

Check to see that the top is not getting too brown. If so, cover loosely with foil.

Bake for another 15 minutes or until bubbly and fully baked.

Let cool for 10 minutes before cutting.

Grandma Fern puts some of the crumbled bacon on the top for the last 15 minutes of baking.
