In ovenproof or cast-iron skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook onions, thyme, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until onions are tender and golden, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in bowl, beat eggs; stir in parsley. Pour over onion mixture; reduce heat to medium-low and cook until bottom and side are set but top is still slightly runny, about 10 minutes.

Broil until top is golden and set, about 3 minutes. Cut into wedges.

Change it up: Golden Onion and Gruyère Frittata
