Description

This is a delicious and savory breakfast casserole starring Stacy’s chips. It has a bready pita chip base, mushrooms mixed with the chunks of melted cream cheese, and bacon.

This one’s a keeper for me.

Ingredients

  • 10 slices Bacon, Cut Into 1/2" Pieces
  • 12 whole White Mushrooms, Sliced
  • 8 whole Eggs, Beaten
  • ½ cups Half-and-half
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 4 ounces, weight Cream Cheese
  • ½ cups Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • 10 ounces, weight Stacy's Simply Naked Pita Chips

Preparation

Fry bacon pieces in a large skillet until done but not overly crispy. Drain on a paper towel, pour grease from skillet. Add mushrooms to skillet (don’t clean skillet first) and cook until done.

Mix eggs, half-and-half, salt, and pepper.

Arrange pita chips in an 8 x 11-inch baking dish. Slightly press to flatten. Tear pieces of cream cheese and evenly distribute over the top of chips. Distribute mushrooms and bacon over the top of this, followed by the cheddar cheese. Pour egg mixture evenly over all ingredients.

Place into the fridge for several hours of overnight (makes a handy breakfast casserole!), then bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes or until eggs are set. Cut into squares and serve immediately. Enjoy!

I was looking for something to make next week for Easter brunch. I assembled this last night and we had it after we got home from church this morning. This was a very yummy recipe. I did do a few things differently though. I made my own pita chips. Also I used 8 oz of cream cheese, drained half of the bacon grease from the pan and cooked the mushroom in the grease; I then cooked it for 20 minutes in a 350 oven ‘cuz 325 did not seem like it would set the eggs. I will be sure to make this again! Thank you!

I fixed this on a whim for an office “goodbye” breakfast for one of our employees transferring to another office. It was such a hit that the pan was empty within 5 minutes of me bringing it out. Everyone wanted the recipe! My only complaint was the cooking time. After 20 minutes at 325 degrees the eggs were still runny. I ended up cooking it almost 45 minutes but after that it was perfect!
