60 servings

1 cup butter

100 eggs

2 1/2 quarts milk (AKA-48 oz OR 6 Cups)

1 1/4teaspoons white pepper

7 1/2 cups (30oz) shredded swiss cheese

7 1/2 cups cubed fully cooked ham

30 servings

1/2 cup b

50 eggs

1 1/3 milk (3 Cups)

3/4 wp ..(1/2t.+1/8t. WP)

3 3/4 cups cheese(15oz) & ham

15 servings

1/4 cup b

25 eggs

2/3 milk (1 1/2 Cups)

1/4 wp (then 1/4t.+1/16t WP )

cheese(7Oz) A little less than a block-

around 1 3/4 C ham

7.5 servings

1/8 Cup b

12 1/2 eggs (i guess beat one seperate and divide? im sure adding 13 shouldnt really hurt )

3/4 CUPS milk

something like 1/8 tsp & a dash of WP

3 1/2 Oz cheese

and about a Cup of cubed ham

Recipes dont have to be 100% exact usually- especially when it comes to the optional ingredients like ham.. and cheese.. a little more cheese- it will just be a lil cheesier in flavor.. eggs- change the amt and the consistancy of the casserole will change But a 1/2 an egg really shopuldnt matter - maybe add a tad more cheese if you keep the 1/2 egg and a pinch extra of everything else too.. it'll be fine .
