- 7 whole large eggs
- 3 large egg whites
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 green bell pepper, chopped
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
- 4 oz bulk breakfast sausage (1/2 cup)
- 1 cup coarsely grated sharp or extra-sharp Cheddar (1/4 lb)
Whisk together whole eggs and whites, milk, and 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper.
Cook bell pepper and onion in oil in an ovenproof 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until softened and golden, about 8 minutes. Add sausage and cook, breaking up large clumps, until no longer pink, about 2 minutes. Add egg mixture and half of cheese and cook, lifting up cooked egg around edges to let uncooked egg flow underneath, 3 to 5 minutes (top will still be moist).
Sprinkle top with remaining cheese and broil 4 to 6 inches from heat until set, puffed, and golden brown, about 3 minutes.
Cool 5 minutes, then loosen edges with a spatula and slide onto a plate. Serve warm or at room temperature.
