Easy Delicious Egg Bake
We entertain quite often so I have learned a few short-cuts over the years to make cooking for a crowd a little easier. We recently had a family brunch and although cutting up the fruits for the fruit salad and making the homemade waffles may be time-consuming, the egg dish does not have to be. This Egg Bake is very simple and quite delicious.
Ingredients: (This is a very large serving that makes about 18 slices. Cut ingredients in half for a smaller group.)
- 1 dozen eggs
- 1 1/2 cups of milk
- 1/2 lb. of ham
- Approx. 6 oz. of shredded cheddar cheese
- Crazy Salt
- Fresh ground pepper
Crack the eggs in a bowl and add the milk slowly. Beat with a wire whisk. Pour into a glass pan (mine is 9X13). Cut the ham, ( You can use boiled or baked deli ham), in small pieces. Place the ham over the egg mixture in the pan. Sprinkle the cheese over the top. Use Jane’s Crazy Salt, (found in most markets) and sprinkle over the whole mixture, lightly. Then, grind the fresh pepper over the top.
Put into the oven at 350 degrees until golden brown (about an hour). You will notice that it rises somewhat in the oven but when you put it on the table it will deflate.
A few notes: This is great for a buffet table because it stays hot for a long time. It cuts very easily; use a knife and spatula to lift out of the pan.
Also, depending on your taste, you can make variations of this: saute peppers and onions to add to it, roasted red peppers and mushrooms, etc. Get creative!
