  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 tiny new or 3 medium red potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 2-1/2 cups)
  • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt or 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 ounces fresh asparagus, sliced into 1-inch pieces (about 2 cups)
  • 1 cup arugula, baby arugula or baby spinach, slivered or coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped cherry tomatoes or chopped tomato
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (4 ounces)
  • 12 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 ounce fresh Parmesan cheese, cut into shards
  • 2 tablespoons white truffle oil, sesame oil or walnut oil (optional)

  3. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until center is just set.
  4. Place on cooling rack; immediately sprinkle with Parmesan. Let stand 15 minutes.
  5. To serve, cut into 8 wedges. Serve immediately with a light drizzle of white truffle oil over each serving, if you like. Makes 8 servings.
