  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking dish.
  2. Beat eggs together in a large bowl. Stir milk into eggs.
  3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat; saute onion until softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Add ham; cook and stir until ham is warmed, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer onion-ham mixture to the prepared baking dish. Layer provolone cheese over onion-ham mixture. Pour egg mixture over cheese; season with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 to 50 minutes.

Delicious! I mixed the eggs and milk in the blender to ensure that they were well combined. I used 3 slices of 2% American cheese and 3 slices of muenster that I needed to use up. Very flavorful, and I liked how the cheese made sort of a 'crust' on top. Super simple...a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

I used part-skim low-moisture mozzerella because I didn't have provolone. My casserole was a bit wet though thoroughly cooked. I like my eggs a little dry. Moisture aside, the meat, eggs and cheese together were a little much for me. I think I would prefer a vegetable-egg combo, but this is just a matter of personal taste. Also, if you decide to make this use very little salt on the eggs. The ham provides more than enough saltiness.
