This is a great way to serve eggs and whatever leftover veggies you have in the fridge. Feel free to substitute the veggies out for anything you have sitting around. You can do the same for the cheese. Have fun with it!
Because of the moisture in the pressure cooker, the top may look underdone when the casserole is actually cooked, so be sure to check the center for doneness with a sharp knife. If it is very runny, put it back in the pressure cooker to cook 5 more minutes. If it is just a little wet in the center, it will finish cooking while it rests. If it is somewhere in between very runny and a little wet, leave the casserole in the cooker with the lid on for five more minutes.
- 9 eggs
- 6 T whole milk, 2% milk, half-and-half, or heavy cream
- 1/2 t salt
- 1/2 t black pepper
- 2 T butter or olive oil
- 1/2 cup onion
- 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
- 1/2 cup finely chopped bell pepper
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar or Swiss cheese
- Butter the inside of a 2-quart high-sided, road souffle dish. Make an aluminum foil sling and set the baking dish in the middle of it.
- Whisk the eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a large bowl until smooth and uniform, about 2 minutes.
- Turn the pressure cooker to sauté function. Add the 2 T butter. When the butter is melted, add the onion, mushrooms, and pepper and sauté for 3-5 minutes until the vegetables are soft.
- Scrape the vegetables out of the pressure cooker insert into the eggs and milk mixture. Add the cheese and scrape the entire mixture into the prepared souffle dish.
- Cover the souffle dish tightly with tin foil.
- Add 1 1/2 cups of water to the pressure cooker. Set a trivet in the bottom of the pot. Use the sling to lower the souffle dish into the pressure cooker. Fold down the sling’s ends to fit into the pot. Lock the lid onto the pot.
- Cook on high pressure for 25 minutes with the keep warm setting off.
- Use the quick release method to bring the pot’s pressure back to normal. Unlatch the lid and open the cooker. Use the sling to remove the dish to a wire rack. Remove the tin foil and cool the casserole for 5 minutes.
- Run a flat edge knife along the edge of the casserole. Set a plate on top of the casserole and invert the dish onto the plate so the casserole is released. Cut to serve.
