My version of Ham and Cheese squares
Lisa's Ham and Cheese Brunch Squares (adatpted for Pampered Chef)
1 bag of tater tots (I didn't use the whole bag, but could have...) $2.00
8-9 eggs $.75
1 cup milk $.75
1/4-1/2 chopped peppers (I roasted, chopped it in a food processor, then froze mine until I needed it.)
white pepper, or regular pepper $1.00
6-8 oz of deli ham (your favorite or one that you picked up at the store because it was on sale, with a coupon and you had a store coupon.) $3.00
1-2 cups of cheddar cheese (less if you are counting calories) $2.00
Spray the pan with oil so the eggs don's stick to the pan. I covered the pan (13x9) with tater tots, and baked it at 350 for about 10- 15 min. just long enough that you can still touch the tater tots but that it's not still hard from the freezer.ted peppers and pepper to the mix. whisk until it's all incorporated. let it sit.
sprinkle the cheese and deli ham on top the tater tots, add the egg mixture to on top Place in oven for about 15-20 minutes.
Serve warm, it should have about 10 servings. at about $10 for the dish that fed my family of 5 twice.
For a variation I will add sauteed veggies or mushrooms with other deli meat, Or for a more savory option I have used a clove or two of garlic pressed into the egg mixture. This recipe is really just the bare bones to what you could add to the dish to make it yours, I have been know to use ground up pork sausage instead of ham too!
I hope you try it, let me know how good it is, as I really love those easy yummy recipes that really only takes 30 minutes from start to finish!
