Breakfast Casserole Recipe


Ingredients
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.
