  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400˚.
  2. If sautéing vegetables, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in an 10″ cast iron (or other oven-safe) skillet over medium-low and cook vegetables. If not sautéing vegetables, heat olive oil alone.
  3. Whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Pour into skillet and cook for 5-6 minutes until bottom is set. Sprinkle of fresh vegetables and cheese. Transfer to the oven and bake for another 10-12 minutes until puffed up, doesn’t jiggle, and is slightly browning. Remove and let cool slightly before serving.


*Often I’ll make this recipe for 2 people by cutting the recipe down to 4 eggs and 1/4 cup milk. Adjust the cooking time down to 8-10 minutes.
