(Printable recipe)
Ingredients
  • 16 oz. sweet or mild Italian sausage
  • 1 T. butter
  • 1/2 of a medium-sized red onion, chopped
  • 8 oz. sliced baby portabella mushrooms
  • 12 eggs, beaten
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  4. Pour egg mixture into a 13x9" baking pan coated with non-stick cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees until set and a bit puffed in the center, about 35 - 40 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving. Sprinkle top with chopped parsley.
NOTE: Italian Egg Casserole may be prepared the night before, refrigerated over night, and baked the next morning.  Increase baking time to 45 - 50 minutes.
