Ingredients:

  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced*
  • 1/4 cup orange bell pepper, diced*
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 10 large eggs
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 3 Tablespoons sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt

  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 8 ounces cooked ham, cubed or diced

Preheat oven to 350°.  Spray a 2 quart baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter and sauté the sliced green onions, red bell pepper and orange bell pepper.  Season with seasoned salt and black pepper to taste.  Sauté for about 2 minutes or until softened.

In a blender, blend together the eggs, half & half, sour cream, seasoned salt, black pepper and nutmeg.

Pour 1/2 of the egg mixture into the prepared baking dish.  Sprinkle evenly with the cooked green onions, bell peppers and diced ham.  Top with 1 cup of the shredded cheese.  Pour the remaining eggs on top.

Bake for 40 minutes then sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup of the Monterey Jack cheese.  Continue to bake for another 5-10 minutes until the center is set when gently shaken.  Rest for 5 minutes before serving.
