1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

6 large eggs

3/4 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon mustard powder

Salt and pepper

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley leaves

  2. Put stuffing in the bottom of pan to warm and stir to break up a little. Sprinkle cheese over top.

    Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and fresh parsley.
