Christmas Morning Wife Saver
8 slices whole wheat bread
8 slices vegan cheddar cheese
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
1 cup spinach
3 egg replacers (http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=7678.0)
1/4 cup white onion, minced
1/4 cup green pepper, chopped
1 1/2 cups plain nondairy milk (I use soy)
1/2 cup vegan margarine, melted (I use Earth Balance)
crushed cornflakes or corn meal, as needed
1. Grease a glass baking casserole dish that is large enough to lay out 4 pieces of bread. Then, take the crust off of the bread slices and lay out 4 pieces on the bottom of the pan. Keep the other 4 and put them off to the side to apply to the top of the casserole later.
2. Cover the bottom layer of bread with the cheese, mushrooms and spinach. Now cover this layer with the remaining 4 slices of bread. In a bowl, prepare the egg replacer according to the box. Mix in green pepper, onion, pepper and milk. Pour over the casserole.
3. Cover and allow to sit overnight in the fridge. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Take the casserole out of fridge and melt the margarine in microwave. Pour this over top of the casserole. crumble the cornflakes over the top.
4. Bake in oven uncovered for 1 hour. Remove from oven and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes before serving.
Now sit, eat and be merry because this is the best Christmas morning breakfast ever! It's all prepared the night before, so no extra work on Christmas day (this is always a good thing).
