Spray a 9 x 13 inch casserole pan with cooking spray.
Cook the diced bacon in a skillet until it is nice and crispy. Place cooked bacon on a paper towel lined plate and set aside.
Whisk together the eggs, milk, Dijon mustard, Worchestershire sauce salt and pepper in a bowl.
Take half of your bread cubes and make a single layer into your prepared casserole dish.
Add a layer of half of your bacon on top of the bread.

Repeat those steps again by adding a second layer of bread, bacon and cheese. Using the remainder.
Pour or ladle the egg mixture over top of the casserole. Making sure that it is coated evenly.
Cover the casserole with foil and chill in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours prior to baking.
