Breakfast Casserole

I got this recipe from my old neighbor, Kristen. She is a great cook, and I always love getting new recipes from her. This one is super simple and doesn't involve overnight refrigeration like most breakfast casseroles. We made it for the Howe family over Christmas and they all loved it, even the kids (which says a lot considering our group).
Not the best picture ever. If you haven't noticed, we are here on howetocook are amateur photographers.

15 eggs
1 C. milk
1 C. sour cream
1 1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 C. grated cheddar cheese
1 1/2 C. ham or sausage (I buy the packaged, diced ham, and 1 package is the perfect amount)
1 green pepper (optional)
1 pkg. fresh mushrooms (optional)

Whisk eggs, add milk, and whisk again. Add other ingredients. Melt 3 Tbsp. butter ina 9X13 pan. Add egg mixture to pan. Bake at 350* for 45-50 minutes. Knife will come out clean.

I half this recipe and make it in a 8X8 pan for my little family, and it is plenty.

Mmmm. Now I'm wishing I'd made this for breakfast. Instead, I have these in the oven. Still yummy!
