and I wouldn't be surprised if JulieR chimes in too.

This one is my favorite, because it is so versatile. And you can mix up the fillings as you please. I haven't done it yet, but I want to do a crab version of this. The tops of the croissants aren't submerged in the egg mixture so they get golden brown and flaky. Great recipe from Deb in MI.

Croissant Breakfast Casserole" ~ by MarieAlice

Recipe By :MarieAlice/Recipezaar/Deb-in-MI
Serving Size : 4 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Breakfast Overnights

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
4 plain croissants
1 tablespoon butter
2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1/4 cup sliced green onions
4 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup shredded swiss cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese

Split croissants in half and place bottoms cut side up in one layer in a rectangular casserole. Melt butter in a fry pan. Saute mushrooms and green onion until tender and liquid has evaporated. Set aside. Beat together eggs and milk. Pour half over croissants, layer mushroom mixture and cheeses
on top, then pour over remaining liquid. Position croissant tops over the bottoms, cut side down. Let stand over night in the refrigerator. Bake at 350*F for 25 to 30 minutes or until set. Cover with foil if browns too quickly.
Dnote: this is a very forgiving recipe. You may add what you like to it, and leave out what you don't like. The tops of the croissants become golden brown and very flaky. I think this would be good with some diced ham, Canadian bacon, bacon, cooked shrimp or crabmeat. You get the drift. Play with this recipe to your liking both with the ingredients, and the cheeses. You can easily double this recipe or halve it. Serve with sausage, bacon, or ham, and a nice fruit salad.

12 eggs
3/4 pound shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup cream
1 1/2 pounds pork sausage
1/2 large onion -- minced
1 large green pepper -- minced
1/2 pound mushrooms -- chopped
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Fry sausage and drain well. Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan. Break eggs gently into the baking pan, and poke the yolks with a toothpick. Top the eggs with all of the sausage, half the cheese, all of the onion, green bell pepper, red bell pepper, and mushrooms. Cover with the cream and top with the rest of the cheese. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes.
Dnote: I like to keep an eye on this one to make sure you don't overcook the egg yolks.
