First, I don't like Mushrooms, but I LOVE this!! Whenever I take this to a breakfast or brunch get together, it is gone within 15 minutes!!!! If I make this just for hubby and I, I cut it up into serving size squares and wrap in plastic wrap, then whenever we want one we just pop a square in the microwave for 2 ½ to 3 minutes (remove plastic wrap and put on microwave safe plate). Great for people on the run in the morning!

    * Psssst - sometimes I cheat and use Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles if I decide I want to make this at the last minute (late the night before). I use 3 bags (9 oz each).
