A good breakfast means a good start to the day, and with a breakfast so colourful, it is hard to not start the day with a smile on your face. This recipe is a great way for using up left over bits and ends of vegetables that’s sitting in your fridge after a week of cooking.
I used my trusty 26cm Le Creuset Cast Iron Skillet to make this gorgeous one pan breakfast. Simply because I can utilize the stovetop to oven cooking without having to wash another pan. Because cast iron retains and distribute heat so well, I can assure that my vegetables will have even browning and lovely crusting as it cooks itself in the skillet.
The cheese acts as a nest to contain the eggs in the middle of the pan. As the cheese hits the hot vegetables, it starts to melt and forms a gooey cheese nest to herd the eggs together. This prevents the egg whites from making it’s way through the little cracks between the vegetable, and going all over the place. Plus, who wouldn’t like gooey baked cheese?!
