  • 1/2 Cup flour
  • 4 Cups milk
  • 1/2 Cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 Teaspoon black pepper

Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large skillet, cook bacon as specified on the package. Drain on paper towels. Chop bacon into small bits.

Whisk eggs. Melt remaining butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add eggs, stirring until soft scrambled. Pour ⅓ sauce into lightly greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan.
