Sausage-Mushroom Breakfast Bake Recipe - we ommitted the bread cubes and switched in lower fat turkey sausage and half the eggs for Egg Beaters. It turned out great, love the slight mustard flavor and the mushrooms. Can be made ahead and reheated for an easier morning.

To serve these bacon-wrapped potatoes as an appetizer, simply leave in the toothpicks they were secured and baked with. Remove them to serve as a side dish.

The trick is to put the pan in a cold oven and then switch it on and begin your timer. Im amazed how many people dont know this. Cook bacon in the oven. Cover cookie sheet with tinfoil first. We do 375 for about 20 min instead of 400 for ten because the lower and slower the more fat renders out. I hate getting SPLATTERED!! This works perfect! 8/25/12 - This is the easiest way to cook bacon ever! No more standing over a skillet for me! Clean up was easy!.
