Easy and delicious...who could ask for more! One recommendation that I have is to save some of the cheese and other toppings (or add extra) for the top. Once the egg is poured on, sprinkle on a little more cheese, mushrooms and tomato just to give it a prettier finish. Fab recipe. ThanksRead More
Too wet, with all that butter! Reduce to 2T instead of 4T.Read More

WOW! If you are wondering if this is rubbery.. do I have a story for you! My boyfriend came home from work 9 hours after I made this and put it in the microwave.. same great taste not a bit rubbery! I was in SHOCK! I even warned him not to do it. But boys will be boys.. and I am so glad because now I know.. and now you know too =] I mixed a few of the reviews together and added.. sautéed green onion with the regular onion and green peppers (put on bottom).. then on the top I added more cheese and a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies (extra hot).. I also cut the recipe in half and was shocked at how thick it turned out! Thanks! We loved this =]
This was delicious. Everyone enjoyed it. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for the great recipe. At to the reviewer who gave the recipe 1 star because the submitter used the word scrambled instead of whisked ... really? Please use the ranking system correctly or it helps no one. Giving a low score because you didnt read the directions properly is crazy. Everyone else seemed to understand what scrambling eggs in a bowl with milk meant.
I made a lot of changes, but this one is great! I changed the cheese from sharp cheddar to a mix of sharp cheddar and low skim mozzarella. Instead of eggs, I used Southwestern style egg beaters (2 cartons), I used browned turkey bacon browned and cut into pieces and sauteed onions, pepper, and tomatoes together for the veggies. My company RAVED over this and I never told them that any of it was low fat or egg beaters. It was great! Try it!
Amazing recipe. So versatile, easy and delicious. I've made it twice so far. Once for a cookie exchange party and again for a Mother's Day brunch. Everyone LOVED it. I love that you can add or subtract ingredients to what suits you. I made one with mushroom and spinach and another ham and cheese. This recipe has now been passed on from family to friends. A true winner. Also a great dinner idea.
Made this up for my family this morning. I reduced eggs to 8 and upped milk to 1 cup and placed in 8x8 pan. I added diced tomatoes, italian cheese and omitted the olives and mushrooms. This is yummy and easy for you to add and take away your own foods. I love the fact that it doesn't have bread in it. I used cooking spray instead of butter. Thank you!
My husband really loves this dish! I made mine with cheese, ground hot sausage, mushrooms, egg mixture, and some pepperjack cheese squares on top. He divides them into equal portions and eats them for snack at all times of the day!! Great for low carb diets!!
This was yummy. I almost left out the jalapenos, but opted to put them in half the pan, and glad I did bc it gave a great flavor. Used everything suggested. This was tasty, easy, and quick! I would season it up a bit next time and use fresh mushrooms in place of canned, but an overall great recipe!
I made this for the first time today and we all loved it!! I used fresh mushrooms and sauted green peppers with the onion and added browned crumbled sausage. This will be a staple for our weekend breakfast! This would be fun to experiment more with! Thank you for sharing :)
This is so good and very easy to make. I like to make breakfast suppers occasionally, and this recipe worked perfectly for that. We had leftover honey-baked ham from New Year's and it tasted great in this recipe. I left out the jalopenos because we didn't have any... next time I'd probably include them. I did add a couple of healthy dashes of tabasco to the eggs to give them some zip. Thanks for submitting this!
This is a wonderful recipe for a couple of reasons. 1st. It is super simple. And 2ND. It is very versatile. I made it fairly close to the recipe. It usually drives me "CRAZY" when people alter a recipe so much that it is no where near the original recipe and then they give it a very low rating. But I did not have any Olives (black or green) so I left them out. Also I am allergic to hot peppers of all kinds. So of course I left them out as well. But in place of the Jalapeno Peppers I used Green Peppers. Also I do not like canned Mushrooms, so in place of I just replaced them fresh Mushrooms. I did take a couple of the other reviews into account by saving 1/2 of cup of the Cheddar Cheese, and I did use Sharp Cheddar to give it that extra yummy flavour. Although I did make a couple of minor changes, this was still 5 stars. And if I could give it more, I would. Like I did say, because it is a Omelet, it is versatile, to what you like in your Omelet. I am having a brunch this coming weekend, & I have decided that instead of making the usual Scrambled Eggs, I will be making this!!!!!!!
A nice, “unfancy” baked omelet that cuts and serves nicely and leaves lots of room for tinkering with different ingredients. I used fresh mushrooms and added some chopped fresh broccoli. I wasn’t comfortable with the high baking temperature and, while I’m sure it would have worked out fine, I nevertheless reduced the temperature to 350 degrees and baked it until set and a little golden, about 40 minutes.
YUM! I did add some fresh garlic and chopped red pepper and I sauteed them with the onion and fresh mushrooms (instead of canned). I wanted a creamier egg filling, so I used fat free evaporated milk. No jalapeno peppers so I used one 4 oz. can of diced mild green chilies. I added just a touch of dijon mustard and a little Frank's Hot Sauce, as I add that to most of my egg dishes. My family LOVED this. What the boys and I didn't eat, my husband did and my littlest had seconds. Very simple--it literally was ready to go in less than 15 minutes. What's great about it is it's totally bendable to use what you have on hand and make it personal to your favorite omelette fillings. Next time, I'm going to try this with homemade turkey breakfast "sausage".
I have been making almost the exact same recipe for years, minus the ham. You can mix everything together the night before, and leave in the pan in the fridge overnight, and bake it in the morning. You can also add herbs to the mixture.
This is a great recipe and very forgiving on ingredients. In my attempt to make this lower fat, I used just about 2T butter to saute the onions, used Canadian bacon instead of ham, instead of the jalapenos I used bought fresh salsa (left over from company a couple nights before), used 4 real eggs and 8 egss equivalent (2 cups) of egg substitute, skim milk, and reduced fat Swiss cheese instead of the cheddar. It was fabulous and no one knew I had made it low fat!
Very easy and enjoyable. I used a 12" skillet and it created a wonderful crispy crust of cheese. Obviously you can use any veggies or meat you enjoy in your omelets. I would sautee any meats or seafood before placing them into the mix to cook. Veggies are your preference to cook or leave raw. Understand any ingredients placed into the mix will cook very little when baking. Thanks for the post
Really great recipe, I only made one change. I used 8 eggs and upped the milk to a full cup. It came out light and fluffy. I did use sauteed fresh mushrooms (don't like canned). The only thing that really didn't work was the black olives. This surprised me because we are an olive loving family, but they just were too overpowering. I think I will leave out the olives and throw a can of chopped green chilis in instead next time.
This was great! The second time I made it I put tater tots in the bottom of the pan with spray Pam and baked them first while I was chopping all the veggies and getting everything ready. Then tossed all the veggies in and topped with the eggs and a generous sprinkle of jalapeno jack cheese. Great with a fruit salad for dinner....leftovers are yummy, if there is any left.
Too wet, with all that butter! Reduce to 2T instead of 4T.
So easy, so yummy! To cut back on a few calories, I substituted Southwestern Egg Beaters for half the eggs. Since we use 2% milk, I used that. I used Oscar Meyer precooked bacon that I crisped up in the microwave for 1 minute instead of ham. Since I made it a day ahead, I cooked it at 350 for 30 minutes, then reheated at 350 for 15 minutes. I took it to a friend's house for breakfast, and it was a hit! Thanks so much for sharing!!!
No olives but spinach is good. More mustard needed. Nukes great if there are leftovers. I've made it with chopped ham, sausage, pepperoni or no meat. Keeper!
Very, Very good, simple easy to prepare and you can serve bloody marys while baking.
Excellent egg bake. Make sure to not overcook it or it gets a little rubbery.
I've been making this recipe for years and everyone who has eaten has loved it. I also do a variation using pepperoni instead of the ham, add some Italian seasonings and serve it for dinner...it's wonderful and tastes almost like pizza! You can also make it lower fat by cutting down the butter and substituting half the eggs with egg whites. It's still yummy too!
We like having breakfast for dinner sometimes and this is a good recipe for that. Did cut recipe in half--cooking for 2. Always have eggs, cheeses, canned mushrooms and black olives in house this is a good recipe to throw together for unexpected company.
Great recipe and easy to tinker with! Since I was only cooking this for my husband and I, I used a 9x9 pan. I put cheddar cheese on the bottom, then drained canned asparagus and leftover honey-baked ham cut into bite sized pieces. I whisked 1 3/4 cups egg beaters (~8 eggs) with 1/3 cup milk and salt, pepper and a little onion powder to pour over the top. I shredded a little extra cheese on top and baked in my toaster oven uncovered at 400 for 30 minutes. It was perfectly baked and delicious!
"Egg-cellent" basic recipe. (Sorry, I couldn't resist :) I used mushrooms, red & green peppers, bacon, and a mexican cheese blend. The only reason I am giving it 4* instead of 5*, is because we felt the original recipe needed more meat and more cheese than was called for. Served with Trader Joe's roasted breakfast potatoes and a fruit salad, this was a very satisfying breakfast-for-dinner meal. Thank you! I can't wait to experiment with more ingredients in this dish!
This was the best Saturday breakfast dish! Like other reviewers, I kept the basic ingredients and methodology but changed up the ingredients a bit. I sauteed the onion with fresh mushrooms (I hate canned mushrooms) and added some grape tomatoes toward the end of the sauteeing until they split. As the recipe dictated, I put the cheese on the bottom, then layered the veggies on top, chopped deli sliced ham on top of the veggies, then eggs poured over all. I whisked the eggs with milk, a little sour cream and some garden fresh salsa (to overcome the lack of seasoning that some reviewers commented on). Over the eggs I just sprinkled some cheese and studded with fresh mushroom slices and halved grape tomatoes for presentation. Really it was incredible, my boyfriend raved! Thanks for such a great idea!
I loved this recipe! I did not use mushrooms and used bacon instead of ham. Other than those changes I followed the recipe to a T. Thanks!
Good idea but take out the olives and add bacon and hashbrowns!
Delicious! But you should change your direction from SCRAMBLED to beaten. To most folks, scrambled means COOKED. I miss the nutritional guide (calories) that used to be posted with each recipe. :-(
Thanks, this is a great base recipe that you can add anything to.
I tried this for the first time and the family love it! Although I did add cooked hash browns as my first layer--Omelets need hash browns It turned out great! I did use sauages since I didn't have ham, but this is an omelet.
This was great! I used sausage, red peppers and onions as that is what I had on hand. I also cut it to 8 eggs and did it in an 8x8 dish. But the recipe idea was just what I was looking for! This is a great base recipe in which you could put your favorite omelet ingredients.
I love the versatility of this recipe - you can throw in whatever you have on hand. However, after 10 mins in the oven @ 400f, I saw that the top had burnt spots. I reduced the heat, and cooked it for about another 25 mins. Husband really enjoyed it and I thought it was ok.
This dish was a big hit at my family's weekly Knit Night! It was easy to prepare and turned out perfectly. I topped the casserole with some additional shredded cheese and a drained can of diced tomatoes with green chilis as another reviewer suggested. The colors were really pretty with the black olives, the onions, and the diced tomato topping. I used a bigger casserole dish, so I increased all the incredients by about 1/3. We will make this a mainstay for family meal choices. It is also low carb, which is a bonus in our family. It is quite easy to cut the leftovers into serving size pieces and store in the refrigerator. They are easy to reheat in the microwave. It was nice to find an egg casserole that did not include potatoes or bread.
I am not a fan of bread in my egg dish, so this has been a nice substitute. It is great recipe for large groups and if you would like to prepare items in advance. I served this at several gatherings, modifying it per tastes of the group. I've made with eggs and low-cholesterol egg substitute. Flavor varieties included Swiss cheese/artichoke/spinach (used frozen spinach; thaw and squeeze out moisture;may need extra salt); ham/sharp Cheddar with or without diced red and green peppers; and with the ingredients described on the original recipe. For one group, I baked it the day before serving, quickly chilled it, and then reheated it in the oven the following day. All have turned out great.
Very nice recipe. Is good enough to serve guests and quick to make. Able to use what you have on hand and have some give to the recipe. I didn't use jalapenos and maybe I should have, mine seemed a little bland. Just brought spices and hot sauce to table and was fine.
Delicious and low cal! I used two cartons of Southwest Egg Beaters, sauteed mushrooms, onion, green onion, jalapenos, green pepper, garlic, ham and sliced tomatoes. Topped with cheddar and put back in oven for a few minutes. Served with sour cream and hot sauce. The only issue I had was that it was a bit watery from the veggies even tough I had sauteed them first.
This was a great casserole! I left out the ham, but that didn't take away from the deliciousness of this dish. It reheated well in the microwave. I'll be making this recipe again and again.
This was very good and easy to personalize to your family's tastes. This was a simple dinner meal when we were running low on groceries and needed to use up our holiday ham.
This recipe was well liked and it has been made more than once. Thank you.
This was fantastic. I used bacon and ham, added a bit more jalapenos and ommited the olives. I made two of these and kept one in the fridge for breakfast the next morning. It reheated nicely and everyone loved it! thank you :)
Great recipe but I found that I had to add a couple more eggs & a tad more milk to the egg mixture to fill up the dish. I added mini sweet peppers and fresh spinach. Instead of sauteing the onion in the beginning I just through all of the veggies in the pan, covered with egg mixture then topped with black olives and mushrooms. I didn't add cheese since I would rather use it as a light garnish in the end. It did lack some flavor since the only seasoning is salt & pepper but nothing a little Tabasco sauce couldn't fix! Overall, I just love the flexibility of this dish and now I don't have to make eggs every single morning!
I modified the ingredients and it was fantastic! Used the cheddar cheese, hot italian sausage, a can of diced tomatoes, and added some italian seasonings. Decreased to 8 eggs in an 8x8 dish and cooked for 35 min. Great!
I love this recipe! I didn't have black olives or ham so I went with broccoli, breakfast sausage and bacon. It taste so good and was super easy to make.
I made this twice...the first time I followed the recipe exactly, but ommited the ham & peppers. The second time I used spinach. Very good & very easy to make it. My hubby said he could eat this for breakfast, lunch & dinner!
So so so so SO good. SO GOOD! it only took five of us to polish off 8 servings! This will be a dish I make time and again!
Made this recipe for breakfast today. I only changed a few things: I used fresh mushrooms and sauteed them with the onions, and I put a little shredded cheese on top. I also had some cooked sausage leftover from homemade pizza so I added that with the ham layer. This recipe is very good!!!! We loved it and I will definitely make it again. I did have to bake it about 10 min longer than the recipe called for.
This was so good and so easy! I figured we could tailor this to our personal omelet tastes and it seemed to work great. Instead of ham I used 16 oz. bulk pork sausage. While I was browning it, I added the onion plus chopped green peppers and fresh mushrooms (since that's what we had in the fridge) - didn't need the butter, just used the fat released from the sausage. I left out the jalapeno but added the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese left in the bag to the top of the casserole. The cheese on the bottom becomes a delightfully chewy crust. Served with lots of ketchup to rave reviews. Thanks!
really a fabulous and simple idea! I have customized and "healthified" my own slightly. I make it with egg whites, lean ground turkey, plenty of veggies (no need for the butter if you use a nonstick skillet) and fat free sharp cheddar. Even if that's not your cup of tea, this is a great dish for brunch. I make it all the time (even on Christmas as the author suggests). I highly recommend it
I kind of made this recipe my own in the sense that I used egg beaters in place of eggs and left out a few things we didn't like. But over all this was a great way to make omelets for those busy mornings. Thanks so much for sharing!
Just made this for the first time for Christmas breakfast, the whole family enjoyed it! I made substitutions to suit our tastes...I omitted the jalapenos, olives, and used fresh mushrooms as well as some green and red peppers (for a Christmassy look :) ). I also added a can of diced tomatoes, drained, and some cooked and crumbled turkey sausage and bacon. I used a little olive oil to saute the veggies instead of the butter. I also used reduced fat cheese. It was very yummy and easy to make, but next time I will add more cheese. Thanks for the recipe!
I suppose I shouldn't rate this as written because I didn't use the OLIVES, HAM or JALEPENOS. But, this was so wonderful as a baked cheese omelet that I had to give it a perfect rating. It puffed up beautifully and was not dry. I added extra onions and used fresh mushrooms, both of which I sautéed prior to making the omelet. I will definitely make this again. Such an easy way to make an omelet for overnight guests. Next time, maybe I'll add cooked bacon or sausage. I'd love to add some chopped bell pepper, for a western omelet, but sadly my husband doesn't like peppers. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
This amazing omelet casserole is now our new favorite comfort food! I did modify the recipe a bit and am quite tickled with the way it turned out! First of all I lined the greased casserole pan with crescent roll dough and prebaked that crust til lightly browned. I used a dozen eggs, substituted whipping cream for the milk (just because I had it on hand), added fresh spinach, chopped red, yellow and orange bell peppers, leftover diced/smoked ham, fresh scallions,garlic and spices to taste, split grape tomatoes and added 1 can of southwest style corn that I had leftover from a previous dinner. I layered the grated white/yellow cheddar mix cheese first, then the pepper/onion/corn mixture next, and poured the egg/spinach/tomatoe mixture over the top. I baked this for 30 minutes, turned off the oven and sprinkled more cheese on the top and let that melt in the still warm oven. Wahlah! My husband is on his 2nd helping, and although I made enough to send it to work with him for breakfast throughout the week, I doubt it will make it that far! This is DEFINITELY a keeper, and SO easy! There are SO MANY different ingredients you can substitute and I am sure it will be spendid each way! Thank you thank you thank you for a wonderful comfort/breakfast meal! :)
Not doughy or egg-y like many of the egg bakes I have tried. I also like that you don't have to mix it up the night before. This is really 4 servings, not 8 though.
I made this with ham, cheese and mushrooms (extra pepper and a couple dashes of Tabasco) it turned out PERFECT! I had the leftovers the next day and they were just as good. Make sure you layer your toppings on the bottom of the pan and dont stir it after you put your eggs on.
Great Basic Recipe... Made it exactly first time... It was great... Now I mix it up.. Sometimes Mexican theme, sometimes a spinach type, sometimes it is just a great way to use up leftovers.. Budget friendly and so Versatile... Thank you :)
These were just okay. The family didn't care for the overwhelming flavor of black olives and even though I added cheese to the top as well, it was very blah. I smothered mine with salsa and thought it was fine but I have been asked to never make this again!! Sorry....
I love making this, but always put the shredded cheese on top - the bottom works better. I also added some tarragon and a little Mrs. Dash in the egg mixture.
WOW!! This is really great! I made this for my Mom & myself, and the only changes I made were omission of the mushrooms, and since we like our food on the "spicy" end, I added a generous splash of TABASCO sauce, and I added some cheese on top! So DELICIOUS!!
This is pretty good, and relatively easy. I didn't have shredded cheese so I just used sliced cheese and it worked just as well. Eliminated 2 ingredients: onions (we don't like them) and olives (don't have at the moment). I halved this recipe and it's resulted in three servings each. Bc bf is the one who likes mushrooms, I put mushrooms on half the omelet and am giving him those sections. My omelet needed an extra 15 mins in the oven to set. Thanks for the recipe!
This is a pretty good simple recipe (thank God), but don't use red onion! I did and, although tasty, the onions for whatever reason turned green. yikes! :O) I topped this with more cheese (you can never have too much!), and it turned out great-
YUMMY!!!!! I also like another review used 1 cup of milk with the dozen eggs and my add-ins were cooked crumbled bacon... breakfast sausage links chopped up and mild cheddar cheese... I will most definetly make this again! Thank you for the share!
Was not my favorite, but everyone one at work wanted the recipe and loved it.
Great recipe. I adjusted ingredients for what I had on hand. Even better wamed up the next day.
Great for my low-carb lifestyle!! I can mix and match the veggies and meats & cheeses to my heart's content! Love it!!!!!!!!!!
I made a versoin of this last week with breakfast sausage, spinach, mushrooms and onions. (That's what I had in my fridge.) I think you could use any ingredients you like. Such an easy, fun casserole. I am making one tomorrow with the listed ingredients but using andouille sausage instead of ham. Thanks for the great recipe !!
I really liked this recipe, but changed it a bit to suit my tastes. I added cooked fresh mushrooms. It is suitable for storing in the fridge and reheating too. Makes for a great second meal too. Thank you!
Inspired by this recipe but needing to adjust for a low sodium diet, I used groundbeef for ham, cooked in no-salt mexican seasoning, subbed stoplight peppers for olives and followed cooking instuctions to a tee. It was great!!! Can't wait to try when it's cold out! Thank you for the great place to start from!
I was staying at my cousin's house and her sister (my other cousin) called to say that her family was stopping by for brunch the following day. We had very little in the fridge, so I plugged in the ingredients we did have in and this was one of the options. What an awesome stroke of luck! It was a huge hit and it has now become a family staple for brunches because it is so versatile. Thank you Bonnie for sharing!
This recipe was easy and good. I used cooked sausage instead of ham and I added shredded potatoes into the 9x13 first.
To make this even easier, you can prepare it the night before and pop it in the oven in the morning. Very versatile - I like to sneak in more veggies.
What a wonderful meatless meal.It was enjoyed by all and will make it again soon.
The picture posted on this recipe makes it look slightly overdone, it actually came out much better than it appeared in the picture.
Delicious, easy and quick. I sauteed a couple cloves of garlic along with the onion, Also added some diced tomato and a leftover baked potato. Definitely a keeper!
Love this! Decided to swap the olives for some green peppers. Layered the ingredients instead as well. Cheese and veggies on the bottom, poured half the eggs over that, added some more cheese and the rest of the oppings and poured the rest of the egg. After cooking, added some extra cheese on top and popped it under the broiler for a minute. Turned out fantastic! Definitely a new favorite. And so easy!!
Loved it and it was so easy to make. I used breakfast turkey sausage and smoked cheddar cheese since that's what I had. I halved the recipe since I was just feeding 3 and there were no leftovers. My picky husband asked me to make to tomorrow's breakfast as well.
Good recipe; I wouldn't change anything.
I made this for my dad on father's day and he absolutely loved it :) My whole family wants me to make it again and I can't wait to use this recipe once more ;P
This is a great versatile recipe. I used ham, turkey, olives, mushrooms, jalepenos, salt n pepper, garlic powder, milk, eggs. It turned out soooo yummy and it was even great leftover, which was a shocker because eggs are never good as leftovers. Thanks!!! Mine did take 40 minutes to cook....maybe i had too much stuff in there, not sure. I also tried this with left over seasoned hamburger. Yum!
I think this is a great recipe. I did make it without the olives though, the first time, because I did not have any. As it is written, I found it a little salty. I make this about once a week and always get rave reviews. It is good with jalpenos or green chilis, with or without mushrooms, and with sausage instead of ham. A great technique as well as a recipe. Thank you original poster.
I just made this and it was so tasty. I did as another reviewer suggested and added a layer of shredded cheese on top and it browned beautifully. Fresh diced tomatoes will go on top of it next time! Thanks
Amazing. I used sausage and spinach in place of the ham and added 10 oz can Rotel drained diced tomatoes with green chiles and pepper jack cheese to the top. It was a huge hit. I had a lot of ingredients so I added 3 extra eggs and baked in a large casserole dish Perfect for New Years Brunch. Make sure you drain the spinach and tomatoes well. Thank you this is a keeper. Everyone wanted the recipe
Made this for my family today and used leftovers from the week to help clean out my fridge. I added boiled potatoes (cubed), mashed potatoes, and ham in layers on top of the Tex-Mex cheese bottom. I also added a layer of chunky salsa for a little zip. To my egg mixture, I added salt & pepper as well as some dill. I baked it for 20 minutes at 350 added more cheese to the top and continued baking for an additional 15-20 minutes. We all loved it and it is definitely a recipe that I will make often - easy peasy to make and a great way to use up leftovers at the end of the week. Thanks for sharing - definitely two thumbs up from our house!!!
Ours didn't come out great, but I gave it 4 stars because it's such a great basic recipe that's easy to modify to suit your tastes. Ours wasn't great because the combo of regular ham, olives, cheese and jalepeno slices made it over-the-top salty. Almost too salty to enjoy. We'll definitely make it again, but with fresh peppers and a lower-sodium ham. thanks!
This was great! My only changes were I used cooking spray in lieu of the butter and used only 10 eggs (egg substitues to reduce the cholesterol). I forgot to season the eggs, so i just sprinkled pepper on top. I figured the cheese and ham would compensate for the salt. The taste and presentation were great. I will definately make this again trying different veggie combinations.
Great Recipe! Except for the olives! lol I left them out!
I served this Christmas morning and it was a real hit! I made it earlier so I could just pop it in the oven. I did use real mushrooms though and sauted them with the onions. That was the only change!
When making this recipe, I thought to myself that I wanted a flaky crust for it! so I got a crescent sheet and baked it first in the bottom of the baking dish ... I then topped the baked crust with the meat and veggies and cheese, and poured the egg on top. Well, my crust then floated. I figured oh well, I'm gonna bake it anyways and see how it turns out. Fantastic! It looked a little odd at first, and I had to poke it because it looked like I was baking a giant ham!! LoL! Well, the egg kind of cooked into the crescent, and it turned out great! I will definitely be making this over and over! :)
Amazing! You can add anything you like and it's delicious!!
I used this recipe as guide cutting it back to 6 eggs and made a bacon/cheese omelet quiche thing since I left out the veggies. I just mixed all the ingredients in a large bowl and dumped it into the prepared casserole dish and topped with a liitle extra shredded cheese and baked. I used onion powder instead of real onion. My teen didn't like it but I thought it was okay. I'd rather have scrambled egg with cheese isntead though.
Scrumptious! easy to prepare, satisfying and fulfilling. I added cilantro and substituted green olives for the black.
Great! Made this for dinner. My son wanted scrambled eggs and then I saw this so made it. I used green peppers instead of the jalapeno peppers and some chopped honey ham I had in the freezer; I sauteed both of these with the onions. Then I followed the recipe until the eggs were added. Once they were in the dish, I gently sprinkled about 1/4 grated Colby Jack cheese & some chopped Roma tomatoes on top. He loved it! Thanks so much for posting the recipe. (Oh! I halved the recipe as it was only two of us, for the whole thing, use 1/2 cup cheese on top.)
I have certain food allergies so i altered the recipe a bit. Instead of butter i used olive oil and in place of the cheddar cheese i used rice cheese that was cheddar flavored. It taste fantastic. I absolutely love how fluffy it comes out and the edges are nice and crispy. The bottom layer of cheese was fantastic. My one recommendation would be use use Silk Soy Vanilla flavored milk instead of regular milk. It adds a little more flavor to it. Just a little pintch. All and all its a great dish.
Perfect for potlock breakfast, large family gatherings. My family really likes this recipe.
i can eat breakfast anytime of the day, so i knew this would be good. its a great basic recipe, with endless possibilities. i subbed cooked breakfast sausage for the ham, otherwise, i made it as written - YUM! so tasty, easy and used only a few dishes (always a bonus, i hate washing dishes). GREAT! thanks for sharing.
Love the versatility of this recipe!
This was so easy. I made this for dinner and I only used sliced tomatoes on top of the cheese. Everyone loved it!
