Recipe Tags: Hot Vegetarian Vegetables Main Course Gluten Wheat Free



60ml/2fl.oz. Olive Oil
1 large Onion, thinly sliced

75g/3oz Fresh Rock Samphire, cut into 5cm/2-inch lengths
8 Eggs
175g/6oz Cheddar Cheese
, grated
Black Pepper



1.  Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the onion and sauté gently for 5-8 minutes, stirring from time to time, until the onions are soft and golden but not too brown.

2. Meanwhile, beat the eggs well, add 100g/4oz of the cheddar cheese and pepper and mix well. Don't add salt as the samphire is naturally salty.

3. Raise the heat under the frying pan, add the samphire, stir to mix thoroughly,  then pour  the egg mixture over the vegetables, moving it around so the mixture seeps through and under the vegetables, and cook for about 5 minutes or until the eggs are mostly set.

4. Preheat the grill to hot.  Place the frying pan under the grill and cook for 2 minutes, then sprinkle with the remaining cheddar and continue to grill for a further 2 minutes until the cheese has melted and is golden. Serve immediately or allow to cool and serve at room temperature.
