Last night we had left over ham. I just didn’t want it to be Christmas Dinner, Part 2. So I searched for recipes with ham:

Glazed Baked Ham — Already had that
Split Pea Soup — Nope, I can’t eat the stuff, reminds me too much of The Exorcist Movie
Bean and Ham Soup — Had possibilities, but I hadn’t soaked any beans.

Then I came across a Baked Omlet with Ham. BINGO! I made this and it had great reviews from everyone, but my non egg eaters (who would eat an egg if their life depended on it). I would recommend this for a dinner, a brunch or even a holiday breakfast.

8 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon season salt
3 ounces diced cooked ham
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1 Tablespoon dried minced onion

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease one 8×8 inch casserole dish and set aside.

Beat together eggs and milk. Add seasoning salt, ham, cheeses and onion. Pour into prepared dish.

Bake uncovered for 40-45 minutes. A knife inserted will come out clean.

I doubled the recipe and baked it in a 9×13 pan. It took about an 1 hour and 5 minutes to bake. I was also thinking this is so vesitile that I can make changes to it and have a totally new meal: All cheese, vegetable, mushroom, chicken. I can see this becoming a favorite at our house.

Today’s recipe is another quick and simple one. It is a great one for a brunch or breakfast item. It can be made sweet or savory.

Simple Dutch Baby

2 tablespoons butter
2 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/2 milk
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put 2 tablespoons of butter into a square baking dish. Place dish in oven. While butter is melting, whisk eggs in bowl. Then whisk in flour, milk and salt.

Take baking dish with melted butter out of oven and pour mixture over the hot butter. Put back in oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until the edges are brown.

The mixture will puff up and then when you take it out it will flatten leaving a shell. You can sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar or cinnamon sugar for a sweet version. Or you could put some cheese on it for a more savory type of dish. We like both.

If you double the recipe use a 9 x 13 inch pan. We usually make 2 of the larger pans for our family.
