|Half and half||3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)|

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 12 x 9 x 2-inch or similar casserole.
2. In a large bowl, toss the bread cubes, cheese, and onion together then arrange this mixture evenly over the casserole. In the same bowl, beat the eggs, half and half, mustard, salt, and black pepper to blend. Pour this egg mixture over the bread cubes. Sprinkle the bacon over.
