I didn't have a particular recipe in mind so I went to allrecipes.com and put this call out on my Facebook page:
What I made today is pretty much a mix of all the info and advice I received.
|Here are the ingredients. The spices are basil, parsley and onion.|
|Salt and pepper the eggs|
It does make me sneeze though.
I add pepper because recipes always call for both salt and pepper.
|Add the spices to the egg mixture.|
|Pour in some milk.|
|It's so pretty!|
|Meanwhile, saute some vegetables. We love mushrooms in our house.|
|These peppers were earmarked for DH's lunch for tomorrow. Sorry, hon. And then I forgot to chop them into smaller pieces. Whoops.|
|First layer. The whole bag of shredded potatoes was waaaay too much, so I put about half back into the bag.|
|Even after putting half of the potatoes back, I didn't think the egg mixture would be enough for the casserole.|
|So I added a can of cream of mushroom soup. That can only help things, right?|
|I added the ham. Probably about 2 cups. Thanks to my cousin Danielle for introducing me to pre-cut, pre-cooked ham, perfect for salads and casseroles.|
|Here's where it really starts to come together. Pour in the egg mixture.|
|Add the cheese. The original recipe called for 6 cups of cheese. Sounds like a heart attack. Here is about 3 cups.|
|Add the sauteed vegetables.|
