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 back...at 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. If you need it to be completely dairy free, you can use homemade biscuits or probably even just cubes of white bread (I haven't tried it, but I'm sure it can be done).
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 (or soy) cheddar cheese, 1 cup of shredded reduced-fat (or soy) 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!!!
