Polenta Breakfast Bake

I love having my kids home for the holiday break and with our long leisurely mornings, it's fun to throw together an easy breakfast bake that we can nibble on all day long. This dish is gluten free and  can be made and cooked in under an hour. Try it with your family!

A few of the simple ingredients:

 Polenta squares, bacon, eggs and cheese ready to bake

Polenta Breakfast Bake
2 tubes precooked polenta
8 slices cooked bacon, diced (I use Kirkland precooked bacon)
8 eggs
3/4 cup milk (I used 1%)
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup finely grated Gruyere cheese
1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
chopped basil for garnish, if desired

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick spray.
Cut polenta into cubes and place in bottom of dish. Sprinkle diced bacon and gruyere on top of polenta. Whisk eggs, milk, Dijon, salt and pepper in bowl. Pour over polenta, bacon and Gruyere cheese and top with Parmesan.  Bake for 35 minutes or until eggs are set and browned a bit. Enjoy!
