Cool, three days worth of calories for breakfast (around 6145).

If you ate the whole thing yourself, yeah. It serves about 4-6 people as a meal in itself, more if you serve it with something else (fruit, oatmeal, etc).

Anything with eggs and bacon is going to be high in calories, but ideally you should be getting most of your daily calories in the morning. 1000 calories for breakfast, followed by a moderate lunch and a light dinner works out perfectly.

mmmmm :o) Do you recommend dried bread or fresh from the loaf?

I think you can use either, since it's going to soak up a lot of liquid. I used a loaf of white wheat bread I bought at Costco last weekend. It wasn't exactly fresh, but it wasn't stale, either.
