Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1-1/2 cups 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

  1. 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.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, flour, salt and pepper; pour over ham mixture. Refrigerate, covered, overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°. Remove casserole from refrigerator while oven heats. Bake, uncovered, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 35-45 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
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).
