  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • ½ cup Onion diced, white or yellow
  • ½ cup Green Pepper diced
  • 8 large Eggs Raw Eggs
  • ¼ cup Water
  • teaspoon Salt
  • 1 pinch Pepper
  • 1 cup Ham cut into ½" pieces
  • ½ cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a medium-sized saute pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter then add the diced onions and bell peppers. Saute until translucent, or about 5 minutes, then remove from the heat and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, add the eggs, water, salt and pepper and beat with a whisk or fork to break up the eggs and combine. Add in the diced ham and shredded cheese and stir to combine.
  • Spray a 9" x 13" baking dish with non-stick cooking spray, then add the sautéed onions and peppers evenly over the bottom. Pour the egg mixture over the onion mixture and gently stir to combine.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the eggs in the middle of the baking dish are set.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before slicing. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, diced tomatoes and avocados if desired. Enjoy!
