Grated Parmesan cheese
- Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with cooking spray

- Arrange the bread mixture evenly in the baking pan.
- Using the same bowl, beat the eggs with a whisk.
- Add the milk, sour cream, oregano, basil and garlic powder. Beat well.
- Pour the egg mixture over the bread, tilting the baking pan from side to side to soak all the bread cubes evenly.
- Cover the pan with foil and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.
- Remove from refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for about 20 minutes.
- Heat oven to 350F, uncover the casserole and bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until golden brown and crisp on top.
