Whole eggs - are the star ingredients in this recipe that create structure, bind, and tenderize the whole setup. You can use medium, large or extra large eggs. The recipe stays exactly the same 🙂
Milk - Adds fats and sugar to help provide a crisp crust, color, and flavor to the recipe. Adding fresh milk improves the texture and mouthfeel of the recipe. You can also use Half and Half instead.
Butter - Makes sure the eggs won't stick to the Instant Pot. If you want, you can use olive oil instead.
Cheddar Cheese - is an ideal ingredient that changes the flavor and texture of the recipe.
