Breakfast Casserole Recipe


1 box or 2 bags of croutons, seasoned (I used 2 bags of Texas Toast Garlic and Butter Croutons)

½ green, red or yellow pepper, diced

1 cup fresh spinach from the garden

2 cans mushrooms, sliced (these were on sale last week at Walgreens)

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 or no bacon, if you prefer)

8 oz. shredded cheese (cheddar or cheddar/mozzarella mix work well – I used 2% cheddar) – Free at Kroger this week with $5 off promo and Catalina deal

12 eggs (.88/dozen last week)

3 cups milk (I used 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 6 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.

    We love fresh produce and leftovers as well! Hubby picked a bunch of tomatoes tonight. I think it is time to visit the neighbors with some'maters. :-)
