Salt and pepper to taste
3 tsp. olive oil
1 thinly sliced medium onion

1. Preheat oven to 375°.
2. Beat eggs with milk and season with salt and pepper.
3. In a medium nonstick pan, heat olive oil over medium heat.
4. Add onion and potato. Saute for eight minutes.
5. Add broccoli and cauliflower. Saute for ten minutes.
6. Reduce heat to low and add eggs.
7. Spoon goat cheese on top of the frittata and cook for two minutes.
