Review and Recipe: All-In-One Egg Casserole

One word - DELISH!! We scraped the pan! I halved the recipe and made it in an 8x8-inch pan.  I didn't halve the sauce, since I knew it would be the kids' favorite part.  It was!  So, if you like lots of sauce, you might want to double the sauce, if making a 9x13 dish of this. I think it would be perfectly fine with the amount given in the recipe, though.
One other thought, I think some chopped red or green peppers sauteed along with the mushrooms and green onions would be nice!
Although there are several steps in this recipe, I still had this on the table in just over thirty minutes.  



All-In-One Egg Casserole  


All-In-One Egg Casserole

12 bacon strips, diced (I used precooked slices.)
2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup butter, cubed (I used fat-free squeeze butter.)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 cups milk (I used fat-free.)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (I used stirred in only one cup and sprinkled the rest on top. I used 2%.)

Scrambled Eggs:

8 eggs (I used half eggs and half Egg Beaters.)
1/2 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste

4 English muffins, split, toasted and lightly buttered (I hit mine with fat-free butter spray.)

In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp; remove and set aside.  Discard all but 2 tablespoons of drippings. Sauté mushrooms and onions in drippings until tender; set aside.(I just coated the skilled with cooking spray.)
Melt butter in a large sauce pan; stir in the flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Cook until bubbly. Gradually stir in milk and cheese; cook and stir until thickened. Stir in the bacon, mushrooms and onions; remove from the heat and set aside.

To make the scrambled eggs: 
Beat the eggs, milk, pepper and salt; pour into a greased skillet. Cook and stir gently until eggs are set; remove from the heat and set aside.

Cut each English muffin half in half again ( I didn't do this.) Place in an11-in. x 7-in. baking dish that’s been coated with cooking spray. Cover with half of cheese sauce. Spoon eggs over all; top with remaining sauce.Sprinkle with a bit of cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 325° for 20-25 minutes or until bubbly.
