  • 1/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 1 TBS butter
  • 12 eggs, beaten
  • 4 oz. sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup melted butter

Melt 2 tablespoons of butter over low heat; whisk in flour and cook 1 minute. Gradually add the milk; cook over medium heat until thickened, stirring constantly. Add 1/2 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper, stirring until cheese melts and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat.

Spray a 9x13 inch pan with oil and set aside.

In a large frying pan, sauté ham, broccoli and green onion in 1 tablespoon of butter. Add beaten eggs and cook over medium-high heat, stirring to form large, soft curds.

When eggs are set, stir in mushrooms and cheese sauce. Spoon into the prepared pan. Combine 1/4 cup melted butter and crumbs; spread over egg mixture. Sprinkle with paprika. Cover and chill overnight.
