Oven Denver Omlete

I LOVE breakfast -- and this month, at work, we were all asked to bring in food for a breakfast buffet. I've already brought in the bachelor sausage strata that Uncle Chuck made for his hunting buddies (recipe below), so I dusted off an old recipe from an unknown source to impress my friends. Fast, easy, and universally loved...

Do all the chopping the night before, throw it together and in the oven in the morning --

Oven Denver Omelet
8 eggs
1/2 c. half and half
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 c. finely chopped ham (food processor)
1 c. finely chopped green pepper
1/4 c. finely chopped onion

In a bowl, beat the eggs and cream until light and fluffy. Stir in cheese, ham, green pepper, and onion. Pour into a greased 9 inch square baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes.

Uncle Chuck's Bachelor Breakfast

1 lb. pork breakfast sausage (like Bob Evans)
6 slices of white bread, crust removed
1 1/2 c. shredded cheese (Cheddar, swiss, you pick)
5 eggs
2 c. half and half
1 t. salt
2 t. Dijon mustard

Cook, crumble, and drain sausage on a paper towel. Place bread on the bottom of a 13x9x2 inch greased baking dish. Sprinkle sausage on top, top with cheese. Beat eggs, half and half, salt, and mustard in a bowl. Pour over bread/sausage. Cover and chill overnight. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes.
