Ham and Egg Breakfast Casseroles Recipe

I made this breakfast casserole for my family one day as I tried using things up in my fridge. Even my picky children loved it! —Lisa Pogue, Keithville, Louisiana

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, coarsely chopped

Directions

  • 1. In a Dutch oven, saute mushrooms in butter until tender. Add Italian seasoning and pepper; saute 1 minute longer. Spread mushroom mixture evenly into two greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dishes.
