- Preheat a non-stick skillet with the oil over medium heat.
- Whisk the eggs, cream/milk, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt together in a bowl. Add the egg mixture to the frying pan, quickly add the vegetables, cover and cook until vegetables are tender and the egg is firm, about 20 minutes.
- Top with mozzarella cheese the last 5 minutes of cooking. If you are using a oven-proof skillet you may place it under the broiler for about 1 minute to slightly brown the cheese.
***Be sure all of your spices are gluten free.***
Feel free to substitute the sweet potatoes with russet potatoes or add 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese to the egg mixture for additional flavor.
If you desire to use all fresh ingredients, substitute the onion and garlic powder for 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion and 1 clove minced garlic. Saute them in the pan and then add them to the raw egg mixture.
