Fast Friday -- Western Omelette Casserole

As you know I am a fan of quick and easy meals. They make my life easier and are wonderful during the week when we are busy with work, school and other activities.

Tiffany over at Eat at Home shared this recipe recently and we had it for dinner this week (it is also a great breakfast/bunch item). One of my fave things about this dish (other than it being prepared to just toss in the oven, was it used up some of our leftover ham that I had in the freezer)

Western Omelette Casserole
Adapted from Eat At Home

1/2 loaf of French or Italian bread
about 1/8 cup finely diced onion
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1-2 cups diced ham
1 cup shredded cheddar
5 eggs
1 cups milk
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
salt and pepper, to taste
Butter a 8x8 casserole dish. Tear the bread into pieces and place in the dish. Scatter the peppers, onions, ham and cheese over the top of the bread. Beat the eggs with a whisk. Stir in the milk, dry mustard, salt and pepper. Pour over the other ingredients. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour.
