This Breakfast Casserole is a great alternative to the standard bacon and egg brunch or breakfast.  The egg layer is loaded with vegetables and meat before it is poured over a gluten free crust.

The first thing I did was prepare the crust for the casserole.  I dumped some Duinkerken Pizza Crust Mix into a mixing bowl.

I added quick rising zest, vegetable oil, warm water and one egg to the crust mix.

Stirring the crust.

Using a small spatula I stirred the ingredients together unitl a dough formed.

Now I covered the bowl with a tea towel and let the dough rise for 5 minutes.

While the dough was rising I cracked a dozen eggs into a large mixing bowl.

I added some almond milk.  I try to avoid cow’s milk whenever possible.

Using a wire whisk I beat the eggs and milk until they were frothy.

Now the crust was ready to be dumped into a greased 9 x 13 inch baking pan.

I used my hands to spread it out evenly in the pan and then baked it in a 425F oven for five minutes.

While it was baking I added diced red peppers, yellow peppers, mushrooms, onions, ham, bacon bits, salt and pepper to the egg mixture and stirred.

I poured the egg mixture over the crust in the baking pan and reduced the cooking temperature to 375F.

Before returning the pan to the oven I sprinkled shredded marble cheese over the top.

I baked it for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center came out clean.
