Man quiche

Man quiche
I'm calling this "man quiche" because it is not a delicate as quiche but just as tasty. And the best part is it's completely open to personalizing with whatever ingredients you prefer. This recipe was inspired by this recipe from The Pioneer Woman's blog.

What you need:
5 eggs
1/2 cup milk, half and half or whipping cream
1 can potatoes
1/2 onion
1 can Rotel tomatoes and chiles
salt and pepper 
other spices - I used dried basil and Lawry's Seasoned Salt
cheese (you'll need about a cup - I used monterey jack)
1 tablespoon butter

What you do:
Dice onion. Cut potatoes into 1-inch cubes. Combine onion, potatoes and butter in frying pan (make sure it has a lid and is oven safe). Cook until onion is done. Add spices. Add Rotel tomatoes. Add cheese. Don't mix. Thoroughly beat the eggs and milk (or half and half or whipping cream). Pour egg mix over the rest of ingredients in pan. Cover and bake for 20 minutes at 300°. Serve and enjoy. Reheats very well (from the fridge) in the microwave.
