Ingredients

  • 1 medium potato diced
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons chives chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cups Swiss chard leaves and stems chopped separately
  • 8 eggs
  • pinch of salt
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese or whatever cheese you have in your fridge
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a 12-14 inch frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the potato, onion, garlic, and chives. Let sit for about 3-4 minutes before stirring to get a brown crust on the potatoes. Continue to saute for about 5 more minutes. Add the swiss chard stems the chopped chives. Stir and continue sauteing until potatoes are just tender. Add the swiss chard leaves, 1/8 cup of water and cover the skillet with a lid. Let the leaves steam for about 5 minutes. Remove the lid and stir the ingredients.
  • Meanwhile, whisk the 8 eggs in a batter bowl with a little salt and pepper. Pour over the top of the vegetables in the skillet and sprinkle with the cheeses. Cook until the sides are set - about 15 minutes. Heat the broiler. Take the skillet off the burner and place in the oven. Broil until the top is puffy and golden (keep you eye on it, this can go fast depending on your broiler).
