By request, this recipe was asked for by several people at a recent gathering and Ernestine Betchan fussed at me yesterday for not printing it yet, so here it is. If you're having guests for the holidays, it's a good one to have on hand.

Egg Florentine Casserole
1 package bacon, cooked
crisp, drained well and chopped
8 oz. grated cheddar cheese
2 (10 oz.) packages chopped
spinach, cooked and drained
1 dozen large eggs
1 pint whipping cream or half
and half
fresh mushrooms, sliced
salt and pepper
red pepper flakes, if desired

Can be prepared the night before cooking and serving. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Layer cooked bacon pieces in bottom of pan. Sprinkle half of cheese over meat. Spread cooked and well-drained spinach over this. Break eggs into a bowl and stir with a whisk. Pour over ingredients in pan. Add remaining cheese and layer mushrooms over top. Pour cream over all. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until firm or refrigerate until ready to bake and serve.

The original recipe called for sausage instead of bacon, but we prefer the bacon with the spinach. Suit yourself.
