Author Notes: Breakfast at my home is usually oatmeal, eggs or Indian breakfast like "idli" or "dosa" "upma" which are savory in nature. One day, my husband asked whether I could make him a single breakfast dish that would include vegetables, eggs, cheese and nuts.
After doing some online research, I decide to use Dorie Greenspan's basic Savory Cake and then add a French-Mediterranean influence by using a combination of cheeses like feta and chevre which go well with olives and the sundried tomatoes.
