This recipe was originally submitted with the name "Mini-Midgy's Baked Eggs". While Mini Midgy has my thanks for her submission, I decided to change the name to Ham & Cheese Baked Eggs so it would be more descriptive. This is an easy dish to make and an easy dish to modify. You can replace the evaporated milk with 3/4 cup regular milk. Cooked and crumbled bacon or sausage could take the place of the ham. You could also add 1/2 cup of sauteed peppers, onions or other veggies. As is, the recipe is very tasty and incredibly easy. Bottom Line: I liked it. (This recipe was submitted in 2003. It was tested and photographed in October 2015.)

How To Make Ham & Cheese Baked Eggs

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Sprinkle cheese evenly in the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle ham over the cheese.

In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, mustard, salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture on top of cheese.

Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes until firm and set in the center. Let cool slightly before cutting into squares to serve.

Tip: If the top of the baked eggs are browning before the middle is set, cover baking dish with aluminum foil and continue cooking until done.
