6-8 servings

My sister, Bari, gave me this recipe after I tried it at her daughter's graduation party. Good thing she made plenty—she had to keep refilling the dish!—Terry Bray, Haines City, Florida


  • 5 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2-1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled


  1. In a small skillet, saute onions in butter until tender; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk, chilies, salt, pepper and cumin. Stir in the cheese, bacon and reserved onions.
  2. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
