Every Christmas morning, my gramma Jean comes to my parents house and cooks a huge and amazing breakfast for my Dad’s side of the family. Unfortunately, this year she was a bit under the weather and wasn’t able to do it so my mom and I made this quick and easy breakfast for us and our husbands. This is another recipe that came from Janet (I also made her bourbon balls for Christmas) and is great because you can play around with it and change the meat and spices to anything you like!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and dock the bottom of 1 deep dish pie shell (you can make one or use a store bought one) with a fork. Bake in the oven for a couple of minutes to prevent the crust from getting soggy once the filling is added. In a bowl, mix together 5 large eggs, 1/3 cup half & half, 1/4 cup chopped onion, 1/4 lb chopped ham, 1 tsp garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste, 1/4 tsp tarragon and dill and a pinch of parsley… beat with a fork until the egg yolks are broken and everything is incorporated.
Pour the filling into the partially cooked shell and float 3 large pieces of Lorraine Cheese on top.
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees until the center is firm and the cheese on top starts to brown a little… about 40 minutes. Enjoy!
