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.
1 3/4 cups
whole milk, at room temperature
1/3 cup cups
extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup cups
sundried tomatoes (squeeze out the oil
pitted kalamanta olives
feta cheese (crumble)
goat cheese (crumble)
each of minced chives and parsley

Break eggs whisk until fluffy, then add milk, olive oil and mix well.
Sift flour and baking powder and add to eggs.
Gently stir in cheese, olives, tomatoes and herbs and chopped walnuts.
Pour into greased loaf tin and bake for 50 minute or until wooden skewer inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
