Prep 25 mins | Cook 50 mins | Serves 6
2 tbs olive oil
1 brown onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
150g sliced leg ham, chopped

10 free range eggs, at room temperature
1⁄2 cup reduced fat cream

Step 1 Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes until just tender. Add ham and kale and cook, tossing often, for 5 minutes until almost tender. Cover and cook for 2 minutes until kale wilts. Set aside to cool.
Step 2 Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Grease a 6-cup baking dish. Combine eggs and cream in a large bowl. Season well with pepper. Whisk until well combined. Stir cooled kale mixture and haloumi cheese through the egg mixture. Pour into baking pan. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden and just set in the centre. Stand for 10 minutes. Slice and serve warm or cold with sliced tomatoes and baby basil leaves.
