This cheesy casserole is rich and satisfying. Serve it for dinner with corn bread and roasted red potatoes.


  • 4 slices prosciutto (about 1-1/2 ounces) or bacon
  • 8 scallions or green onions, thinly sliced (about 2/3 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 1 pound fresh shiitake* and/or button mushrooms, sliced
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese (10 ounces)


  1. In a large skillet, cook prosciutto or bacon until crisp; drain off drippings and crumble prosciutto or bacon. Set aside.
  2. Wipe pan clean. Cook scallions in same skillet in butter or margarine over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove skillet from heat.
  3. In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, and pepper. Stir in cheese and the mushroom mixture. Pour into a greased 2-quart rectangular (12x7-1/2x2-inch) baking dish.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until puffed and a knife inserted off-center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes before cutting. Serve warm. Makes 6 servings.


  • * Remove and discard the tough stems from the shiitake mushrooms before slicing them.

Trying now, added more pepper and a dash of cayenne. The amount listed seems like it could be left out without knowing a difference with all that egg, salty prosciutto, and cheese.

Came out delicious. Have additional recommendations from what i did and what was still needed. Drain liquids from mushrooms after cooking. Add even more black pepper and cayenne pepper. Cover edges of casserole with foil. Took longer than excpected for center. Still plenty salty. For more servings, add some diced potatoes. May help with salt too.
