  • 8   
    eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1   tablespoon 
    snipped fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
    black pepper
  • 2   tablespoons 
    olive oil
  • 1 1/2  cups 
    chopped fresh vegetables, such as summer squash, broccoli, roma tomatoes, and/or sweet peppers
  • 1/3  cup 
    thinly sliced green onions (3)
  • 1/2  cup 
    chopped cooked ham, cooked kielbasa, chicken, or turkey, or crumbled cooked pork sausage
  • 1/2  cup 
    shredded cheddar, Monterey Jack, or Swiss cheese (2 ounces)
In a medium bowl combine eggs, basil, salt, and pepper; set aside. Heat oil in a large broilerproof skillet; add vegetables and green onions. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat about 5 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in meat.
Pour egg mixture over vegetable mixture in skillet. Cook over medium heat. As mixture sets, run a spatula around edge of skillet, lifting egg mixture so uncooked portion flows underneath. Continue cooking and lifting edges until egg mixture is almost set (surface will be moist). Sprinkle with cheese.
Preheat broiler. Place skillet under the broiler 4 to 5 inches from heat. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes or until top is just set and cheese is melted. (Or, bake in a preheated 400 degrees F oven for 5 minutes until top is set.)
