I read the recipe wrong so ended up putting the entire mixture in a 9-inch pie plate and baking @375 for 25 minutes. It was great! lots of veggies, lots of color. This would serve 4 with accompaniments. I served with 1/2 and English muffin. The only substitutions I made was using all eggs and  Monterey jack cheese that I had on hand. So quick and easy.

Easy and fantastic

We make this often and it is pretty easy to change up the ingredients to modify it to what we have on hand.  I typically use 4 whole eggs vs. 2 and 3 whites.  I don't like wasting the eggs and the calories are worth a little more protein IMO.

THIS IS AWESOME!  I had an awful ham that I paid way to much money for left over from Easter (whole foods ham) that I just could not bear to throw away.  It was the wellshire spiral ham that was just dry and flavorless.  This however saved the ham from going to waste, as the ham was not good alone.  I made some substitutions based on what I had in the house.  Broccoli for asparagus and light Mexican blend cheddar from trader joe's for the jarlsberg cheese.  I will make this over and over again!!!

great use of leftovers. I used red pepper instead of green. I used havarti cheese and cheddar cheese since I didn't have jarlsberg. Used a cast iron skillet and it turned out so well. This is a keeper!

This is a great Lenten recipe! I omitted the ham and increased the asparagus. I couldn't find the shredded Jarlsberg cheese so I used a five cheese mixture. Really good! Plan on making this again- now that asparagus is in season!

I loved this recipe, but modified it as well. I used 8 whole eggs, cheddar-gruyere, zucchini, red pepper and spinach. So yummy!
