Picture by Ree Drummond aka Pioneer Woman
Recipe is adapted from this Pioneer Woman Recipe.
What you buy:
12 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 pieces
12 white mushrooms, sliced
8 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup half & half or whole milk
salt and pepper to taste
6 ounces cream cheese
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
4 Pitas, cut into 2 inch squares and toasted lightly
What you do:
Fry bacon pieces in a large skillet until done but not overly crispy. Drain on a paper towel, pour grease from skillet.
Add mushrooms to skillet (don’t clean skillet first) and cook until done.
Mix eggs, half & half, salt, and pepper.
Arrange pita chips in an 8 x 11-inch baking dish. Slightly press to flatten.
Tear pieces of cream cheese and evenly distribute over the top.
Distribute mushrooms and bacon over the top, followed by the cheddar cheese.
Pour egg mixture evenly over all ingredients.
Place into the fridge for several hours of overnight (makes a handy breakfast casserole!), then bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes or until eggs are set.
Cut into squares and serve immediately.
