Egg Bake

We all enjoyed this oven bake!

It's full of tasty ingredients like ham, cheese, onions and red peppers. I had some leftover ham and went surfing for a recipe and found this one at All recipes. The reviews sounded good and they were is excellent. I thought there was way too much cheese, though, so I only used 3 c. and it turned out great. I mean I like cheese, but SIX cups?  Three was just right.

I'm glad I tried this and will definitely make this again soon!
