Directions

  1. Melt 1 tbsp of the butter in a saucepan. Whisk in flour and salt. Gradually whisk in milk until smooth. Bring mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened. Remove from heat. Add 1-1/4 cups of the cheese, stirring until melted. Set aside.
  2. Melt remaining 2 tbsp butter in a large frying pan. Add mushrooms and onion; saute until tender and liquid evaporates.
  3. Whisk eggs. Add eggs and bacon or ham to mushroom/onion mixture. Cook until eggs are just set but still a little wet. Stir cheese sauce into egg mixture.
  4. Spoon mixture into a greased 9-inch (23 cm) square baking pan or 2.5 L casserole. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese over top. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  5. The next morning, uncover and bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) oven until heated through and cheese is melted, 20 to 25 minutes.

To give this egg pie a little creamier texture, I used fat free evaporated milk instead of regular milk. I did add a few spices (fresh ground black pepper, little Frank's Hot Sauce, garlic powder, pinch sea salt) and I used pepperjack cheese. We loved this. Very good. This would be a great base recipe to throw in whatever add-in's you like, too. Next time, I think I'll add spinach and diced tomatoes.

I made this for Christmas morning and my husband loved it! I will probably make this again. It's just that it's hard for me to find breakfast meat I can eat (nitrates, etc.). I made it with coconut milk and chorizo and it came out really well. Not too spicy and delicious.
