Ingredients

12 eggs

1 large butterball potato

1 large onion

1 large bell pepper

1 jalapeno

1 ear sweet corn, kernel cut from cob

2 tbsp. vegetable oil

Salt & black pepper to taste

 

Optional:

Splash of cream for eggs

Extra sharp cheddar

Directions

Preheat oven to 375. In a large, oven-safe pan, heat vegetable oil on medium-high heat. Dice potatoes into ½ inch cubes and place in pan. Dice onion and bell pepper into ½ pieces and cut corn kernels from raw cob. Cut jalapeño and remove seeds, then finely dice. When potatoes begin to brown add onion until onion begins to look transparent. Then add the corn, bell pepper, and jalapeño and sauté for about 2 more minutes. Add approximately 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Crack 12 eggs into large bowl (add splash of cream and ½ cup extra sharp cheddar and 1 tsp salt if desired) and stir with a fork. Make sure veggies are spread evenly on bottom of pan, then pour egg mixture over veggies. Let cook on stovetop for about 3-4 minutes or until eggs begin to set on the edges. Transfer to preheated oven and bake for about 15 minutes until eggs begin to fluff up, but remove before the top browns. Serve warm with your favorite hot sauce (I suggest Secret Aardvark brand habanero hot sauce, made in Portland, OR).
