Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups trimmed asparagus chopped
  • 1 sweet red pepper diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme (or 1 tsp/5 mL dried)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese crumbled

Method

In 9- or 10-inch (23 or 25 cm) nonstick ovenproof skillet, melt butter over medium heat; cook asparagus, red pepper, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, about 5 minutes.

In bowl, whisk eggs with milk. Stir into asparagus mixture; sprinkle with feta cheese. Cover and cook over medium-low heat until bottom and side are firm but top is still slightly runny, about 7 minutes. Broil until golden and set, about 1 minute.
