Breakfast casserole is one of my favorite Holiday dishes. I'll be making it tomorrow morning after Christmas Mass for a filling brunch while we open gifts. You can try it with a number of variations: using multiple veggies; trying different cheeses; adding herbs/spices; using sausage, bacon, or both; or spicing it up with banana peppers, jalapeños, and serving with a side of salsa or sour cream.
12 Eggs (or egg substitute)
1 1/2 Cups Skim Milk
2 Cups Grated Monterrey-Jack Cheese
2 tsp. Dried Mustard
1 tsp. Sea Salt
1 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
10 pieces Whole Wheat Bread, torn into pieces
4-6 oz. Turkey Sausage, Browned
4-6 oz. Turkey Bacon, Browned
6-8 oz Chopped Spinach (fresh or frozen, thawed)
4 oz. Mushrooms (I used a small can)
1. In a mixing bowl beat together the eggs, milk, cheese, mustard, salt, and pepper.
3. In the morning, preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Bake for 45-55 minutes, or until the eggs are set.
