National Origin: American
Estimated Time: 30 to 60 Minutes
8 ounces fontina cheese, shredded
4 ounces gruyere cheese, grated
1 T olive oil (use oil from jar of tomatoes)
1 onion, chopped
½ c sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, drained (julienned)
5 ounces baby kale
cooking oil spray of choice
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Mist a 9″ or 10″ pie plate with the cooking oil spray.
Cook the chopped onion in the olive oil over medium heat until softened, 8-10 minutes.
Towards the end of cooking the onion, add the baby kale. Put a lid on the pan and steam until the kale is wilted, stirring occasionally.
In a medium mixing bowl, thoroughly combine the cheeses, eggs, tomatoes, and cooked kale mixture. Pour into the prepared pie plate and smooth the surface with the back of a spoon.
Bake for 30 minutes until the eggs have become firm and the cheeses are slightly browned.
Can be made 2-3 days ahead and refrigerated so breakfast is ready when you need it.
