  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten

  • ¾ cup fresh or frozen whole kernel corn, thawed

  • ½ cup thinly sliced green onions

  • 6 slices bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled

  • ¼ cup finely chopped roasted red sweet peppers

  • ¼ cup half-and-half

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno peppers (3 ounces)

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh chives or parsley


  1. Lightly coat a 1 1/2-quart soufflé dish or round casserole with cooking spray. In a medium bowl combine the next eight ingredients (through salt). Stir in 1/2 cup of the cheese. Transfer egg mixture to prepared dish. Top with remaining 1/4 cup cheese.

  2. Place a steam rack in a 5- to 6-qt. electric or stove-top pressure cooker. Add 1 cup water to pot. Place filled dish on trivet. Lock lid in place. Set electric cooker on high pressure 18 minutes. For a stove-top cooker, bring up to pressure over medium-high heat; reduce heat enough to maintain steady (but not excessive) pressure. Cook 18 minutes. Remove from heat. Let stand 15 minutes to naturally release pressure. Release any remaining pressure. Open lid carefully. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with chives.
