Posted: Sep 26, 2018 12:51 PM



1# ground beef

1 TBS olive oil

1 small onion, chopped

8 eggs

¼ cup heavy cream

¼ tsp. garlic powder

Salt/pepper to taste

6 ounces (less than one cup) grated cheddar cheese

Ketchup, mustard/pickles for serving


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a 12” ovenproof skillet*, add the olive oil and ground beef. Cook beef, over medium heat until browned (do not cook until hard/tough), stirring. Add onions and cook until soft. Drain, if necessary (too much liquid?) and add garlic powder and salt/pepper

While watching the browned beef, whisk together the eggs and cream.

Sprinkle the browned beef with about ½ cup of the grated cheese, then pour the egg mixture over the beef/onions and spread out eggs to distribute evenly.

Put skillet in oven and bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Pull skillet out and top with the rest of the cheese, then return to the oven for 5 more minutes. Cut into wedges and serve warm with condiments (ketchup, etc.) of your choice.

*if skillet is not ovenproof, transfer the browned beef/onions from the skillet to a pie plate or an 8” square baking pan before adding the cheese and eggs. Proceed with baking.

Temperatures started out on the mild side with most areas in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Monday was another warm and windy day with temperatures climbing into the lower 70s. With the dry conditions outdoor burning should be avoided Monday and Tuesday as low humidity and gusty winds continue. Winds will stay breezy over the next few days with wind gusts around 20-30 mph. A more active pattern of weather will settle in for most of this week with our first chance of light rain overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. A better chance for more moderate to heavy rain with possibly a few thunderstorms will move into the area Wednesday night into Thursday with a cold front. That front will stall south of our area late in the week, providing several more chances for rain throughout the rest of the week into the weekend. Temperatures will be a bit cooler after the cold front rolls through with highs back in the 50s.
