Baked Oven Omlette

This is recipe comes Laura at Real Mom Kitchen. Her Mom has made this as long as she can remember. The great thing about this is you can make it the night before and have it already in the morning. It works great for Christmas morning. Open presents while it cooks in the oven. She likes to buy the sandwich bread that is in the shape of a square to make this. It makes it easier. This recipe also is a great way to use up leftover ham. You make this in layers like lasagna. With this, it's like the bread is your noodles.

Baked Oven Omelet

1 loaf of bread
3 cups of grated cheddar cheese
1/2 pound chopped ham ( I do 2 cups)
1/4 cup chopped green onion
5 eggs beaten
2 1/3 cup milk
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. paprika
1 Tbsp. prepared mustard

Trim crust off bread. Save crust for another use. As you layer the bread, butter each side of the bread. I just use my tub of margarine for this. Placea layer bread in the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan, just enough buttered slices to cover the bottom of the pan. Then layer 1 cup of the cheese, half the ham, and half the green onion. Place another layer of buttered bread slices. Top with 1 cup cheese, remaining ham, and remaining green onion. Beat egg, milk, salt, paprika, and mustard together. Pour over layers in pan. Top with remaining cheese and refrigerate overnight. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes, until knife comes out clean. Serves 9-12
