Baked Eggs

My grandmother would make this recipe in Holland in the cold winter days. It is delicious. The downside is this recipe is for about 12 people, so we would eat the same dish for three days. (Of course grandmother would not have used a food processor, like us modern cooks).

2 pounds Jack cheese
2 pounds Cheddar
3 red peppers
2 pounds mushrooms
2 red onions
1 bunch basil
1/2 bunch parsley
6 ounces butter
20 eggs
4 cups milk
2 pounds ham

In processor slice peppers, remove. Slice onions, remove. Slice mushrooms, remove. In processor chop basil and parsley until fine. Remove. In processor, grate Jack with cheddar cheese. Remove. Julienne ham by hand. In medium pan, melt butter. Add onion; cook 5 minutes. Add peppers and heat with onions. Add mushrooms and cook 10 min. Drain well. Prepare a 6 x 13 x 2-inch pan with cooking spray. Spread 1/2 of cheese into pan-spread peppers, onions and mushrooms over cheese. Spread parsley and basil over vegetable mixture. Spread ham over parsley and basil. Spread remaining cheese over ham. In processor, place eggs and milk. Blend well. Pour over mixture. Set on cookie sheet and bake 1 to 1-1/2 hours at 300 degrees.
