I like to spend as much time as I can with my guests when they stay with me for the holidays, so I rely on make-ahead recipes to help that happen. Because most overnight brunch casseroles are so similar, I came up with a breakfast bruschetta for a fun change of pace. —Judi Berman-Yamada, Portland, Oregon

  • 1 tube (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 3/4 pound sliced baby portobello mushrooms
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups pizza sauce
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 9 large eggs
  • 2 ounces fresh goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup french-fried onions
  • Fresh basil leaves


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Unroll pizza crust and press onto bottom of a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan that's been sprinkled with cornmeal. Brush crust with 1 tablespoon oil; sprinkle with 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese. Bake 8 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook and stir until tender. Stir in garlic powder, rosemary, pepper and salt. Stir pizza sauce into mushrooms; spread mushroom mixture over crust.
  3. In a large skillet with high sides, bring vinegar and 2-3 in. water to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Break cold eggs, 1 at a time, into a small bowl. Holding bowl close to surface of water, slip eggs into water.
  4. Cook eggs, uncovered, 3-5 minutes or until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard. Using a slotted spoon, remove eggs; place over mushroom mixture in baking pan. Sprinkle goat cheese and remaining mozzarella over eggs and mushrooms. Refrigerate, covered, overnight.
  5. Remove pan from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 400°. Sprinkle onions over top. Bake, uncovered, until golden brown and heated through, 10-15 minutes. Top with basil just before serving.
