This is a really easy casserole recipe that I think could just as easily be lunch or dinner! For those who prefer wheat or whole-grain bread, you can definitely substitute those for the white bread in this recipe. Also, the milk could easily be heavy cream or half and half depending on the type of texture and creaminess you're looking for!
