Omelet Casserole

Every St. Patrick's Day I like to throw a wildly fun and hugely green breakfast for all of my favorite friends. We serve everything from green pancakes with green butter and green syrup to green coffee cake and green grapes and name it, we got it.

Today I tried a new dish with green---an omelet casserole. I only saw a picture of it in a magazine and decided to try making up a good enough recipe to serve to my friends. I think it was a hit! And since so many people asked what the recipe was (and I didn't HAVE a recipe), I thought I'd write what I did down (here) and hope that would suffice. So, here it is:

(9 x 13 dish)

About 10 russet potatoes baked
About 8 oz ham
About 1 block medium cheddar cheese
About 3 roma tomatoes
About 3 cups baby spinach leaves
About 18 whole eggs
About 1 whole yellow onion
1 cup milk

3 Tbsp parsley
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder

Slice the potatoes into 1/4 inch slices and place on bottom of pan
Layer with ham, onions, and tomatoes (all chopped into small cubes), chopped spinach, and shredded cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Layer this way twice more.

In a bowl set aside, combine eggs, milk, flour, and spices and beat until frothy. Pour whole bowl of egg mixture over the potato/onion/tomato/spinach/cheese layers and throw it in the oven.

Bake at 375 for an hour! Serve hot!
Super yummy!
