This recipe came from allrecipes.com and slightly adapted from my friend Stephanie. She thought this recipe sounded outstanding, but didn't think her husband would like it. But, he's already asking her when she is going to make it again. She added sauteed mushrooms and smeared avocado (after cooking). She said that this thing was sooooo good and they just added fruit on the side for a great meal.
6 eggs, beaten
1/4 t salt
1/8 t pepper
1 T butter
1 (1pound) loaf French bread
6 oz thinkly sliced deli ham, divided
3/4 c shredded Monterey jack cheese, divided
3/4 c shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1/2 medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced

1. In a small bowl, combine eggs, salt and pepper. Melt butter in a skillet; add eggs. Cook and stir until set; set aside. Cut the top fourth off loaf of bread. Carefully hollow out top and bottom, leaving a 1/2-in. shell. (Discard removed bread or save for another use.) Set top aside.
