Cheese and Mushroom Brunch Eggs
Scrambled eggs made casserole-style for serving a crowd.
3 tablespoons margarine or butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 3/4 cups milk
1 cup shredded process Swiss cheese (4-ounces)
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Nonstick spray coating
3 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
24 large beaten eggs
Tomato slices, cut in half
Sliced green onions
- For sauce, in a saucepan melt the 3 tablespoons margarine or butter. Stir in flour. Cook and stir for 1 minute. Add milk all at once. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Stir in the cheeses. Cook and stir over medium heat until cheeses melt. Remove from heat.
- For eggs, spray an unheated 12-inch nonstick skillet with nonstick coating. Heat skillet over medium heat. Cook mushrooms and the 1/2 cup green onions in skillet until tender. Transfer vegetables to a bowl; set aside.
- In the same skillet melt 1 tablespoon of the margarine or butter. Add half of the eggs. Cook over medium heat without stirring until eggs begin to set on the bottom and around the edge. Using a large spoon, lift and fold the partially cooked egg mixture so the uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking until eggs are set throughout, but still glossy and moist. Transfer scrambled eggs to a 3-quart rectangular baking dish. Scramble remaining eggs using remaining margarine or butter; remove from heat.
- Spread half of the mushroom mixture over the eggs in the baking dish. Drizzle about half the sauce atop. Top with the remaining scrambled eggs, mushroom mixture, and sauce. Bake, uncovered, in a 350°F (175°C) oven about 25 minutes or until heated through. Top with tomato slices and remaining sliced green onions. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
Makes 12 servings.
