Looking for a delicious and easy breakfast? Look no further! This is the perfect egg dish for breakfast, lunch, or anytime of the day. A great Christmas morning breakfast that is fancy but doesn't require a lot of work! (I am talking to you, mom in the kitchen who cleans it all up!)
I was looking for some breakfast inspiration that everyone in my family would enjoy to eat, I went to Laura's website for some recipes and stumbled across my answer! Be sure to checkout the original recipe on her website lolosdesserts.com.
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 cups broccoli florets
1.5 cups cooked ham, chopped (you can substitute with sausage, bacon, or left over steak)
6 ounces cheddar cheese, cut in cubes or shredded
In a large cast iron pan (or oven safe pan), turn to medium high heat and drizzle olive oil on the bottom of the pan. Once hot, add the chopped onions and cook until getting soft.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, add the eggs, milk, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Whisk until all combined. Set aside.
Then layer the broccoli over the onions. Then the ham over the broccoli. Then the cheese all over.
Pour the egg mixture over everything. Do not stir. Turn heat to medium and let sit for about 9 minutes.
Turn oven to broil on low. After 9 minutes, move entire pan to the oven and place under broiler for 2-4 minutes. Watch carefully and check every minute. Once turns slightly browned, remove. Let cool slightly and slice up like a pie and enjoy!
