Mushroom Recipes

12 eggs, well beaten
9 slices white or wheat* bread, crusts removed, cut into 1/2" squares
6 tbsp butter (4 tbsp cut into cubes, and 2 reserved for cooking mushrooms)
3 cups milk
6 scallions
1 cup chopped spinach

1/4 cup chopped green pepper
2 tbsp chopped pimento
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 lb fresh maitake or shiitake, chopped
2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Sauté garlic and maitake in 2 tbsp butter. Cook until soft and just golden brown.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and blend well. Pour egg mixture into buttered casserole dish and refrigerate, covered, for 8 hours or overnight. Bake the mixture in a preheated 300° F oven for 1 hour, uncovered. Serve immediately.

*If using wheat bread, be sure it is somewhat fluffy to absorb the egg, if it is too dense the consistency does not come out right.
