brunch bake

Sorry it's been a while since I've posted a recipe! Life has been crazy, what with birthdays, Christmas celebrations, and preparing for travel. Every time I do sit down, I write Christmas cards instead of playing with my blog. But, I'm least for now.

This recipe is a great, easy recipe for a weekend breakfast or brunch. It's pretty, incredibly filling, and a quick fix. It's also low fat!

First, arrange 8 oz. of refrigerated biscuits in a baking dish that's been sprayed with cooking spray. I used Grand's Reduced Fat Buttermilk Biscuits.

Then, mix together the following ingredients: 24 oz. egg substitute, chopped cooked turkey bacon (the recipe calls for about 7 oz., but I used much, much more), 1 cup of shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese, 1 cup of shredded reduced-fat  mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup of chopped fresh mushrooms, 1/2 cup of finely chopped onion, and 1/4 t. pepper.

Pour the mixture over the top of the biscuits.

Colorful, isn't it! Then, just bake it, uncovered, at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. It's beautiful and delectably delicious!!!
