Overnight Mushroom Egg Casserole Recipe

Want to be sure your family's eggs are all ready at the same time on Christmas morning? Try this merry make-ahead breakfast casserole. I sometimes make it heartier by adding some dries beef with the bacon.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + marinating Bake: 35 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
