Brunch Eggs for a Bunch

Scrambling eggs for more than two people can quickly become an exercise in acrobatics - especially if you are trying to make toast or bacon or other side dishes. Making scrambled eggs for 8 or more becomes even more ridiculous and this is the best way I have found to make them. They stay moist even if you leave them in the oven for too long and can keep warm for a while too covered with foil until you are ready to serve. You can add almost anything to this mix - up to 2 cups of grated cheese, chopped cook bacon, ham, sausage or other meat, cooked vegetables, cream cheese, fresh or dried herbs...just make sure anything you add is chopped or grated finely as big chunks will interfere with the texture and cooking of the eggs, and so will adding too much (more than 2 cups) total of optional ingredients. The eggs will still be tasty, but they will not have the smooth, creamy texture that your guests will love. You can double, halve, or multiply this dish easily as needed.

1/2 cup melted butter or margarine
2 dozen eggs
2 1/2 cups milk
2 teaspoons salt (or to taste)
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (or to taste)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Pour the melted butter or margarine into a 9X13 baking dish and tilt to coat evenly. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs until they are thick and lemon colored, about three minutes. Slowly beat in the milk and then add the spices. Scrape the mixture into the baking dish and bake uncovered for ten minutes, fold gently with a spatula or spoon and then bake an additional 10-12 minutes, or until the eggs are set. If you are cooking in advance, make sure the eggs are almost set and remove from the oven before they fully set as they will continue cooking as they sit at room temperature.
