10 large eggs

1/4 cup milk

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 cups chopped cooked broccoli

1 cup shredded Cheddar

1/4 teaspoon cayenne

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Snipped fresh chives, for serving

Lettuce or arugula leaves and tomato wedges, for serving, optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Whisk together the eggs, milk, 3/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large bowl. Stir in the broccoli, Cheddar and cayenne.
  3. Heat the oil in a medium ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the egg mixture and cook until the edges start to set, about 2 minutes. Transfer to the oven and bake until the center is set, 15 to 20 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before sliding carefully onto a cutting board. Cut into wedges and transfer to serving plates. Sprinkle with chives. Serve with lettuce leaves and tomato wedges if using.
