    Arrange the remaining Bread over the Cheese mixture, Butter side up. Pour the custard over, making sure to moisten all slices. Gently press down to soak up all the custard. Let the dish set covered in foil, overnight in fridge.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Shingle the bread in butter side down for the bottom layer, and butter side up for the top layer.
    2. Whisk the extra bacon drippings into the custard.
    3. Let the bread putting set up the night before in the fridge.
