  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 red pepper, diced

  • 1/4 of a white onion, diced

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add in 2 tsp olive oil. Once hot, add 1/2 each of diced red and green peppers and 1/4 of a diced white onion and cook for about 4 minutes, or until tender.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together 8 eggs and 1/3 C of milk and season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.
