I baked this for an additional 15 minutes, and although the egg substitute was cooked, it was still a little too runny and, therefore, difficult to cut into squares. This had a total of 4 cups of liquid added to an 8" casserole which seemed like a lot to me, but first time through, I try to follow the recipe as written. Next time, I will use 1-1/2 cups milk and see how that works. I used cremini mushrooms that I had on hand, and added a small chopped mini red bell pepper for a little more color. On the positive side, the taste was fantastic, full of flavor, and nutritionally, this breaks down very well. Definitely will be making this one again.
