I  always love  cooking breakfast so when tasked to create a recipe using some of my favorite breakfast ingredients, as a casserole, making this came to mind.

The eggs have such a great texture in this- it is almost like a quiche, but—way more eggs (it is for breakfast, after all). It is quite lovely baking and rises up into a golden dome, reminding me of beautiful souffles.

It has a slight bit of southwest flavor, but not overly so- just enough to enhance the potatoes with the ham and cheese.

This is perfect for breakfast or brunch, and a dinner breakfast too. In fact, I had this for a light dinner as a change of pace. I hope you enjoy it any time  of day.
