Easy Level with only 30 minutes total time


8 large eggs
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 small red onion, sliced (1 cup)
2 cups chopped cooked broccoli
1/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar 

(1) Separate 4 of the eggs, putting the whites into a bowl 
and saving the yolks fo another use 
(using within 4 days). Add the 4 whole eggs and
 2 tablespoons of water to the whites and whisk well.
(2)In a medium ovenproof nonstick skillet heat the oil
 over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook until it is softened,
 about 5 minutes. Add the broccoli and cook for another 2 minutes.
 Season with salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over 
the vegetables in the skillet covering them evenly. 
Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and let cook until 
the egg mixture has set around the edges but is soft in the middle,
 about 8 minutes. Sprinkle with the cheese.
(3)Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. Now Place the skillet
 under the broiler until the surface is set and golden brown,
 1 to 2 minutes. Don't overcook or the eggs will become tough.
(4)Cut into 8 wedges and serve.
