8 slices white bread (crusts removed)
butter (softened)
1 1/2 lbs. sharp cheddar
1 T. brown sugar
cheese (shredded)
1/4 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
2 dashes cayenne pepper
2 1/2 c. milk
1 medium onion (finely diced)
2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
6 eggs slightly beaten

Butter each slice of bread and dice into cubes. Arrange half of the cubes into the bottom of a greased 9" x 13" casserole dish. Cover with half of the cheese and repeat layers.

Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl and blend well. Pour this mixture over the bread and cheese layers. If there is not enough milk to barely see around the edges, add a bit more to moisten.

Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight. Let stand for one hour before baking. Bake for one hour at 300º F or until browned and puffed like a soufflé.
