Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 6 green onions, chopped
  • 1-3/4 cups cubed fully cooked ham
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1-3/4 cups 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

Sprinkle cheeses into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. In a large skillet, heat butter over medium-high heat; saute mushrooms, red pepper and green onions until tender. Stir in ham; spoon over cheese.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, flour, salt and pepper; pour over ham mixture. Refrigerate, covered, overnight.
Preheat oven to 350°. Remove casserole from refrigerator while oven heats. Bake, uncovered, until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean, 35-45 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 10 servings.
Health Tip: If your guests don’t eat meat, leave out the ham and toss in more veggies (you’ll also save 300mg sodium per serving).

"Not my favorite recipe. Folks at work seemed to like, but I didn't care for the texture."
