Breakfast Casserole Recipe

1 box or 2 bags of croutons, seasoned (I’ll be using 2 bags of Texas Toast Garlic and Butter Croutons that were on sale a couple months ago with a .50 coupon)
1 green, red or yellow pepper, diced
1 can mushrooms, sliced
½ onion, chopped
6 Morningstar veggie bacon strips, cooked and crumbled (6 strips cooked in microwave for 2 and ½ minutes) – of course you can also use real bacon, bacon bits, veggie sausage, real sausage, tofu or nothing, if you prefer)
6 oz. shredded cheese (cheddar, four cheese Mexican, cheddar/mozzarella all work well)
12 eggs
3 cups milk (I use skim milk)
Garlic and pepper to taste

Place croutons on bottom of 9 x 13 inch pan. Put veggies over croutons. Spread crumbled bacon over veggies. Sprinkle approx 4 oz. cheese evenly over pan. In a large bowl, mix eggs, milk and spices together well. Pour into pan. Sprinkle remaining 2 oz. cheese over top of casserole. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.

    Thanks Faye. With the great deal on tofu, I had to get some to try it. I am amazed how healthy the label says it is.

    Not really a recipe, arapahoecheif. I just take the Nasoya tofu out the tub it comes in. Cut it into 1/2" slices, lay it out on paper towels and soak up the water. Then I cut it into cubes, heat up some olive oil on the skillet and cook until heated. Then I put some teriyaki sauce on it (Lawry's or Ken's usually) and cook on a higher temp until it starts to get a little crispy. We like our tofu a little crispier so I cook it on a high temp. Some like it softer and cook it at a medium temp. Then I do the same thing for the veggies (the kids don't like the veggies and tofu mixed) and serve with rice. So easy - so delicious. I could seriously eat teriyaki tofu & veggies every night, I think. :-)

    Yep - they stack, Bklyn - I've coupled the mq's and store Target q's for Morningstar a number of times - love those deals!
