Pizza Casserole

We made this for supper tonight and I decided that it was definitely blog worthy!! This will make an appearance over and over again!!

The Real Recipe...

Old Mill Cookbook.

8 Slices Bread
2 cups sliced pepperoni
2 cups coarsley grated mozzarella cheese
10 Mushrooms
1 green pepper, sliced thinly
6 eggs
2 1/2 cups milk
1 cup or more spaghetti sauce

1. Grease a 9 X 12 pan
2. Remove crusts from bread, then cube the bread and set aside
3. Layer some bread, pepperoni, cheese, mushrooms and green peppers. Repeat twice more.
4. Mix eggs and milk and pour over ingredients in the pan
5. Just before placing in the oven, pour spaghetti sauce on top.
6. Bake uncovered at 350 for 1 hour.

How we did it...

C made 1/2 a recipe. B made 1/2 a recipe. Our girls made a whole recipe. (Based on family size:-)

Each kid got 5 pieces of bread. They had to remove the crust and rip it up.

Each kid got one slice of pepperoni (the sandwich type slice, they were cheaper). They had to cut it into small pieces.

Pooky started grating the cheese. I finished it. (1 whole block, split out over 3 meals)

I opened the 2 cans of mushrooms. Princess drained them and the kids got them split out on their plates.

We didn't use green peppers because they were too expensive to buy.

Each kid cracked 3 eggs. Each kids picked out their own shells.

I poured enough milk to make the eggs go over the whole mixture.

Then the kids assembled their own pans.
1. 1/2 the bread
2. 1/2 the pepperoni
3. 1/2 the mushrooms
4. 1/2 the cheese
REPEAT the layers once.

Then they poured the egg mixture over the top.

They are now covered in the fridge. We will add sauce to them tonight before baking
The final product:

This is all that was left when I remembered to take a picture:-) Inhaled!!

And Faith...while she couldn't enjoy this meal, she enjoyed corn on the cob and ribs...not too bad!!
