Ingredients for servings

  • 1.5 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 medium onion, sliced into thin strips

  • 6 - 7 large eggs

  • 1.2 cup whole milk

  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 0.25 tsp ground pepper

  • 0.5 head of broccoli chopped into bite-sized pieces

  • fingerling potatoes or other baby potatoes thinly sliced


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Heat up a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat; add 1.5 tablespoons of olive oil. Wait until the oil has warmed up (you can tell by tipping the pan back and forth – once you see striations or the oil start to disperse, it’s ready) and add the onions. Add a dash of salt, and toss with tongs or a wooden spoon until the onions are coated in oil. Toss every few minutes but let them slowly brown in the pan over the next 15 minutes.

  • While the onions are caramelizing, whisk eggs with milk and cheese.

  • Add 1 teaspoon of salt and 0.25 teaspoon of ground pepper.

  • After the onions have cooked for about 15 minutes, add the broccoli and potatoes; mix all ingredients together. Saute for about 3 more minutes.

  • Pour egg mixture into the pan. Shake the pan a few times so that the egg mixture settles into all the crevices between the broccoli, potatoes, and caramelized onions.

  • Place skillet in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until the top is a golden brown. Let cool for about 5 to 10 minutes. Slice and serve.
