Cut red onion in rings and place in a small frying pan with a dash of olive oil, sauté with a lid on adding the balsamic vinegar - once soft and caramelised set aside to cool.
Chop bacon up into small pieces, fry in a small pan, set aside once cooked.
Chop vegetables up small,
- if you’re using hard vegetables like potatoes, sweet potato, pumpkin pre-cook until soft before adding to egg mix.
- soft vegetables like leafy greens, broccoli, zucchini, tomatoes can go straight into the egg mix.
In a bowl whisk eggs - add red onion, bacon, vegetables, herbs, parmesan, S&P
Add egg mixture to a heated non-stick, oven-proof frying pan. After a little while slide a spatular down the side to check if the bottom has gone a golden colour - if it has transfer your frying pan under the grill and cook until golden on top.
