Savory Mushroom Puff - Outdoor Wednesday









From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...The cakes and cookies have all been baked and safely stored. Now, like it or not, it's time to get back to kitchen basics and think about making a "real" meal or two. This mushroom puff is a cross between a crustless quiche and a souffle and it is one of my favorite casseroles for a holiday breakfast or brunch. It's really simple to do and the few ingredients that are used to assemble it provide great texture and a unique flavor. The dish can be oven ready in 15 minutes and on the table within an hour. It holds well and can be served hot from the oven or warm. It can also be reheated. It would be wonderful to serve for breakfast on Christmas or New Year's morning. The casserole rises slightly in the oven, a bit like a souffle, and, while it deflates quickly, it has great color and visual appeal. The recipe can be doubled without a problem. Here's how it's done.

Savory Mushroom Puff
...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite

Ingredients:
4 thick slices white bread, crusts removed
1/2 pound breakfast sausage, cooked and crumbled
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
3 cups sliced mushrooms
6 large eggs, beaten
1 cup baking mix (i.e. Bisquick)
2 cups milk
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley + parsley for garnish
1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch square glass pan and set aside.
2) Line bottom of pan with bread slices.
3) Combine sausage, onions and mushrooms and sprinkle them over bread slices.
4) Combine eggs, baking mix, milk, mustard, mayonnaise, parsley, sage and cheese in a bowl. Pour into pan.
5) Place a baking sheet under pan. Transfer to oven. Bake until puffed and golden brown, about 45 to 50 minutes. Cut into squares and garnish with chopped parsley, if desired. Yield: 9 servings.

You always come through right when I need you. I thank you for sharing this one. I so needed something for our Christmas breakfast this year, as we will not be eating dinner until about 4pm. You are a jewel my friend. Thanks for sharing.

Please stop by and say hi. I so love it when you do. Country hugs and so much love sweetie...Sherry

Well, now I see I will have to run back out to the market for mushrooms!

This will be perfect to pack up in my carrier and take to my daughter's for Christmas morn.

What would my holidays be like without you Mary? Since I've turned over the vast majority of the cooking to my daughter this year, something new and special will be a big hit!
