Country-Style Mushrooms with Eggs

Serves 6

Play around with this recipe, and alter the seasonings to suit your taste. Serve this with plenty of hot coffee . . . and the morning paper.
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • ½ lb. fresh mushrooms such as shiitake or cremini, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 10 extra-large eggs, beaten
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 5 dashes hot pepper sauce, or to taste
  • 1 cup shredded Asiago, Parmesan or Romano cheese
  • ½ lb. filo (about 18 sheets)
  • Nonstick cooking spray, ¼ cup melted butter or olive oil for brushing
  • 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt for garnish
  • Thin slices of red bell pepper or fresh mushrooms for garnish
  1. To make Filling: Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté vegetables 2 to 3 minutes. Beat together eggs, salt and pepper, and pour over vegetables in skillet. Cook about 4 minutes, stirring constantly, until eggs are almost firm throughout. Transfer eggs to mixing bowl, and set aside to cool 15 minutes. Stir in pepper sauce and cheese.
  2. Preheat oven to 375F. Spray 9×12-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. To make Filo: Remove 8 to 10 sheets filo from package, covering remaining filo with plastic wrap. Cut filo to fit pan. Spray every sheet or every other sheet with nonstick cooking spray, or brush with butter or oil as you place them into pan. Spread egg mixture on top of filo layers. Top mixture with remaining filo layers, spraying or brushing sheets as before.
  4. Bake about 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove, and cool about 15 minutes before garnishing and serving.

I am confused by this- I like the idea, but really you're just making scrambled eggs, putting filo on top of them, and then baking them for 30 minutes?? How can they not be dry at that point and how would this hold together when you slice it? Maybe this would work not cooking the eggs first (like a quiche), but not sure if that would work with the filo on top :/ oh well
