A - Z Blogging Challenge - X

I never shorten the word "'Christmas" in this fashion, however, finding a recipe that starts with an "X" was really tough.  Please excuse this one indiscretion, I won't do it again!!


You prepare this the night before, and we always have it for breakfast on Christmas have to try it!!  Serve it with fresh cut up fruit, hot cinnamon rolls, coffee and cranberry mimosas.

Xmas Morning "Husband" Saver 

3 cups milk
6 eggs
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. dried mustard
1 Tbsp. minced onion
1 Tbsp. worchestershire sauce
cooked ham, back bacon or sausage meat  (your choice)
2 cups shredded, sharp cheddar cheese
1 1/2 loaves thickly sliced bread (I use egg or white bread)
1 cup crushed corn flakes
1/3 cup butter

Cut crusts from bread and cover the bottom of a buttered 9" x 13" pan with one layer of bread slices.  Top with your choice of meat, then sprinkle the cheese over the meat.  Cover cheese and meat with a layer of bread slices.  (You're forming a sandwich of sorts)  Set aside.
Beat eggs until frothy, add milk, onion and seasonings; mix well.  Pour egg mixture over bread in pan.  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.  In the morning assemble topping by melting butter, adding cornflake crumbs and mixing together.  Sprinkle over bread, bake at 375 degrees F. for 1 hour.

From the History of Christmas: Xmas is an abbreviation for Christmas. It is derived from the word ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ, transliterated as Christos, which is Greek for Christ. Greek is the language in which the whole New Testament was written.

Originally, Xmas was an abbreviation where the X represents the Greek letter chi, which is the first letter of Christ's name. However, because of the modern interpretations of the letter X, many people are unaware of this and assume that this abbreviation is meant to drop Christ from Christmas.

So, you can feel confident that you're not showing any disrespect by going with X-mas!
