  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Rounded 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large shallot, chopped
  • 1 1lb bag frozen hash browns, thawed in microwave
  • 1 10 oz box frozen chopped broccoli, thawed


  1. Put oven rack in middle position and preheat over to 375.
  2. Whisk together eggs, milk, pepper, nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon salt until combined, then whisk in Cheddar and 3 tablespoon parmesan.
  3. Heat oil in well-seasoned 10 inch cast iron skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then saute shallot, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 3 minutes. Add hash browns and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes. Spread potatoes evenly in skillet and cook, undisturbed, 2 minutes. Remove from heat and spread broccoli over potatoes, then pour in egg mixture. Sprinkle with remaining parmesan. Bake until set 2 inches from edge but still slightly wobbly in center, 12 to 15 minutes.
  4. Turn on broiler. Broil 4 to 5 minutes from heat until top is set, puffed, and golden brown.
