Mushroom Brunch Bake

From Katie, General Manger, Life Box™ / Planted Planet Productions.

  • 12 eggs, well beaten
  • 9 slices white or wheat* bread, crusts removed, cut into ½" squares
  • 6 tbsp butter (4 tbsp cut into cubes, and 2 reserved for cooking mushrooms)
  • 3 cups milk
  • 6 scallions
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • ¼ cup chopped green pepper
  • 2 tbsp chopped pimento
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 lb fresh maitake or shiitake, chopped
  • 2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper

Sauté garlic and maitake in 2 tbsp butter. Cook until soft and just golden brown.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and blend well. Pour egg mixture into buttered casserole dish and refrigerate, covered, for 8 hours or overnight. Bake the mixture in a preheated 300 °F oven for 1 hour, uncovered. Serve immediately.

*If using wheat bread, be sure it is somewhat fluffy to absorb the egg, if it is too dense the consistency does not come out right.
