Pea Pie

Hubby was talking to the kids about omelets and asked why I never made them. We explained that omelets and fritatas are the same thing. All three kiddos like green peas. I thought Number One Son was allergic to them, but he is doing fine eating them on occasion. Number Two Son can only eat them this way, no more stir fry with peas for him, last time more than one ended up in his nose!

1 cup, thawed frozen green peas or one can drained canned peas
6-12 eggs (depends on the number of portions)
salt, onion powder, dried or fresh dill, to taste
canola oil
1/2 cup of cheese, grated (optional)

Put about a tablespoon of oil in cast iron skillet, add peas and then eggs that have been whisked up with the seasonings. Gently pull the eggs away from the edge of the pan until the eggs are mostly set. Finish for 15-20 minutes in a 350* oven. Sprinkle with cheese for the last 5 minutes. Our kids like to eat this with homemade mayo.

They love egg days, which makes them dread the no egg, no bean day. I guess since I grew up as a meat eater, this is as close to home cooking as I can get. I pray that they don't become allergic to eggs or anything else. We have enough on our plate.
