  6. Whisk eggs, add milk, cream, nutmeg, salt and pepper and whisk again.
  7. Add onion and gruyere/swiss and stir to combine.
  8. Pour egg mixture over bread cubes and toss.
  9. Pour bread mixture into prepared pan and sprinkle with bacon.
  10. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
