1 cup red onions, sliced 250 mL
1/4 cup parsley, chopped 60 mL
12 eggs, beaten 12

1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded 125 mL
1 cup goat cheese, crumbled 250 mL
1 cup roasted red peppers*, sliced 250 mL
2 cups cooked Ontario turkey, diced 500 mL

Pre-heat oven to 375°F (190°C).

Lightly oil a 13” X 9” baking dish.

In a large skillet on medium, heat oil and sauté Italian seasoning for 1 minute to release the flavour. Add mushrooms and onions and sauté until golden. Remove from heat and stir in parsley. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat eggs, water, salt and pepper until foamy. Stir in mushroom and onion mixture, cheeses, red peppers, and turkey.

Pour mixture into prepared pan and bake in the centre of the oven for 30-40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean.

*Use prepared roasted peppers from a jar for added convenience.

Prep time: 45 minutes.
