This was an emotional choice for me. My mom used to make a Western Omelette and after she passed I realized that I didn’t have the recipe. I searched online for one that looked the most like hers and found this one. I think it’s pretty right on.
To be made in advance and refrigerated over night or all day.
- 1/2 loaf bread- cubed
- 1/8 cup diced onion
- red pepper diced
- green pepper diced
- 8 oz diced ham (you can but it already diced)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 10 eggs
- 2 cups milk
Cut up the bread and put it in a glass 9×13 pan.
Add the onion, peppers, ham and cheese.
Whisk the eggs then mix in the milk. Evenly pour in to dish.
* Most people eat this for breakfast- if so make the night before, cover and refrigerate. We were eating it for dinner so I made it first thing in the morning and refrigerated it all day.
Bake 325. 1 hour.
We were both thrilled with how this turned out.
