Breakfast Casserole Recipe

1 can mushrooms, 4 oz., sliced
½ onion, diced
½ box Boca Sausage Links (vegetarian soy based links found in freezer section), cooked and sliced
(Cook 5 Boca links in microwave for 1 minute) – of course you can also use real sausage if you prefer or no sausage at all
4 oz. shredded cheese (Cheddar or 4 Cheese Mexican cheese work well)
12 eggs
2 cups milk (I use skim milk or ½%)
Garlic, pepper and Italian spices to taste

Place croutons on bottom of 9 x 13 inch pan. Put veggies over croutons. Spread sausage over veggies. Sprinkle cheese evenly over pan. In a large bowl, mix eggs, milk and spices together well. Pour into pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes until browned and set. Let stand 5 minutes.
