Recipe by CHRISSYG
I've finally gotten a chance to make this so I want to revise my description and add some information. Delish! this is a relatively easy recipe that can be eaten for pretty much any meal of the day. It would make a lovely addition to a brunch buffet as well as a nice light supper with a salad. I've made this recipe using half egg beaters and half real eggs, and I've also substituted 1/3 C grated parmesan or locatelli instead of cheddar... either way it turns out terriffic
- 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 medium leeks, cleaned and thinly sliced (white parts only)
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leave
- 8 large eggs
- 1⁄4 cup nonfat milk
- salt and black pepper
- 1⁄2 cup white cheddar cheese, shredded
- 2 small tomatoes, thinly sliced crosswise
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried oregano
