Overnight Brunch Egg Bake

Another one of those recipes that I just discovered while we were having our guests. Mom made this one for breakfast and from the time it came out of the oven to when it made it to my mouth everything about it was YUM! And I'm usually not thrilled about eggs either...the only way I'd ever eat it before now.. is if it was scrambled, with cheese and ketchup on top. I know a lot of you out there must think I'm absolutely nuts to put ketchup on my eggs, but if you are skeptical you have to try it, its really not as bad as it sounds! I promise!

24 oz (6 cups) shredded Colby-Montery Jack cheese blend
2 tbsp margarine or butter
1/3 cup sliced green onions
1/2 medium red bell pepper, chopped
1 (4.5 oz) jar Green Giant Sliced Mushrooms, drained
