Bake at 425 degrees for 25 minutes or until lightly browned; cool on a wire rack 10 minutes. Combine ham, cheese, and bell pepper; spoon into potato shell. Combine eggs and next 3 ingredients, stirring well; pour egg mixture over ham mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until set; let stand 10 minutes before serving.
