Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cooked ham, diced
  • 3 TB olive oil
  • 1 large red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 large green bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 16 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Optional garnishes: sliced green onions and salsa

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F with rack on lower middle position. Lightly grease a 9×13 glass or ceramic baking dish; set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat until hot. Add onions and saute for 2-3 minutes, until softened. Add red and green bell peppers, stirring until softened. Add 1 tsp kosher salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper. Add garlic powder and stir to combine. Turn heat off. Add diced ham to the mixture, stirring to combine. Evenly distribute mixture into the greased baking dish.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, and cheese until combined well. Add 1 tsp kosher salt and 1/4 tsp black pepper, whisking to combine. Pour over ham mixture.
  4. Bake 45-50 minutes or just until center is cooked. Serve warm with green onions and salsa.

Notes

If you’re time-crunched, you can skip the skillet step and place raw diced veggies straight into baking dish with ham and seasonings; the dish will have more “texture” and a bit less caramelized onion flavor, but it will work in a jiffy!
