Bake ham and cheese in a classic custard of eggs and milk, because sometimes the simplest ideas are the best. Hint: be sure to thoroughly grease your baking dish. For a little variation toss in a few sliced scallions or some freshly snipped herbs.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 8 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 cups diced ham
- 1 cup shredded American cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Beat eggs in a large bowl, making sure that they are mixed very well and have a 'frothy' top. Add the milk, salt and pepper. Mix well. Stir in ham, then add cheese pieces and stir well. Pour mixture into a well greased 4 quart casserole dish and bake in the preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes or until top is lightly browned.
