What You Need

2 tbsp olive oil

1 onion diced into small pieces

6 small potatoes cut into fours

½ lb asparagus cut into small pieces

2 tbsp thyme

10 eggs beaten

½ cup milk

1 tbsp baking power

Salt and pepper to taste

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese – white

Before you begin working with your ingredients, go ahead and make sure you have the oven turned onto 375 degrees. You’ll also need a large skilled placed over your stove top on a medium to high setting. In this you will place your olive oil and your potatoes and onion. The cooking time for this depends largely on your onion and your stove, but you’ll want to stop mixing it around when the onion becomes translucent before you add the asparagus to the mixture. You’ll want to go about five more minutes with this, just until your potatoes brown a bit. When this happens, turn down the heat to a low to medium setting, add your thyme and stir periodically.

While this is happening, go ahead and put your eggs and milk together and stir, adding your baking powder and salt and pepper when it’s combined. You’ll then pour this mixture into your skillet and mix everything together very well. The bottom should set in about two minutes time, and that’s when you’re going to transfer your mixture to the oven with the cheese on top. It’ll need approximately 25 minutes in the oven. Let the dish cool and then serve. It’s a delicious recipe.
