Baked eggs with roasted vegetables

This is one of my favorite brunch or breakfast recipes. It only takes about 20 minutes to cook, and it tastes great and seems as if you've spent a long time slaving over the stove. You can substitute skim milk for whole; there's not a huge taste difference. I usually use the skim, actually. I sometimes roast a tomato and some green pepper along with the mushrooms and potato, so feel free to add any kind of vegetable you want. Just remember, cut them small (1/4 inch pieces). You can also throw some bacon or ham pieces in there with the veggies when you serve it if you want. Get everything prepared in pans before you start cooking. Everything goes into the oven at the same time, and you only need to stir the vegetables once or twice, midway through cooking time. Eat with a nice whole grain toast, and it makes a perfect breakfast.

Baked eggs with roasted vegetables

Butter for greasing dish
10 large eggs
1 cup whole milk
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 and 1/2 cups any type cheese, coarsely grated
10 oz mushrooms, coarsely chopped (1/4-inch pieces)
1 large potato peeled and coarsely chopped (1/4-inch pieces)
2 - 3 green onions, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons olive oil

Put oven racks in upper and lower thirds of oven and preheat oven to 450°F. Butter a 2-quart shallow baking dish (about 2 inches deep).

Whisk together eggs, milk, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper until smooth, then whisk in cheese. Pour into baking dish. Bake in upper third of oven until puffed, golden, and set, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, toss together mushrooms, potato, green onion, olive oil, and remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a shallow baking pan. Spread vegetables in an even layer, then roast in lower third of oven while eggs are baking, stirring twice after 10 minutes, until tender and golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Serve eggs with roasted vegetables spooned on top.
