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
  • 1-1/2 cups milk

  • 2/3 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

  • 1. In a small saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons butter. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the mushrooms; set aside.
  • 2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat the remaining butter until hot. Add egg mixture; cook and stir over medium heat until eggs are completely set.
