Cooking Tips:

Mushrooms naturally hold a lot of water. Prep the mushrooms to remove any excess dirt by blotting them with a wet paper towel before slicing them. You do not want to rinse the mushrooms with water, as this will make them even more watery and turn your casserole to mush as they continue to cook down.

If you choose a protein with a higher fat content, like 80% ground turkey or ground beef, I suggest draining the excess fat after the meat is cooked; otherwise, the casserole will "pool" a lot of the fat on top and make for a super mushy and greasy casserole.

How to Store:

This is the perfect recipe for leftovers! I love baking this in an oven-safe baking dish with a lid included for easier storage (and less dishes!) You can just bake it, put the lid on it, and store in the refrigerator up to 3-4 days. If you plan to meal prep this for an on-the-go breakfast, I love using these glass, leak-proof storage containers.
