Breakfast Casserole with Mushroom "Gravy"

February 18, 2016

Author Notes: This casserole has made the rounds and you can find variations all over the internet but I still pull out my Momma's recipe card when I make it.

My family has always enjoyed it on Christmas morning with all the necessary holiday beverages and a winter fruit salad. Hard to mess up and warm and comforting. Perfect to feed a crowd!
