"Whenever company comes to stay over, I make this wonderful breakfast dish," writes Val Forsythe of Albert Lea, Minnesota. "They think I've worked for hours when it only takes about 20 minutes start to finish."


  • 14 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 jar (6 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. In a greased 9-in. microwave-safe pie plate, layer the bacon, cheese, mushrooms and onion. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, milk and cayenne; pour over the onion.
  2. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 4-1/2 minutes, stirring twice. Cook 1-2 minutes longer or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes or until set. Cut into wedges.
