10 large eggs

1/4 cup milk, half-and-half, or heavy cream

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 small onion, diced

1 cup coarsely shredded extra-sharp Farmhouse cheddar (about 3 ounces)


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Melt the butter in a medium non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until golden, about 5 minutes. Add the egg mixture and cook, stirring, until loosely set, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle the cheese over the eggs and stir to combine. Continue to cook, stirring, for 2 to 4 minutes depending on desired firmness of the eggs. Serve immediately.
