    Roast potatoes on a jellyroll pan at 450° for 20 minutes until golden and crispy.

    While potatoes are roasting, melt butter in small saucepan or pot.

    Add flour to melted butter, stirring to make roux. A little at a time, stir in milk. Heat on medium until sauce thickens.

    Remove from heat; add parmesan and Durkees or mustard.

    Whisk eggs in bowl and add small amount of heated milk mixture to temper.

  • 08

    Slowly combine tempered eggs and remaining milk mixture and whisk until smooth.

    Season well with 1 tsp kosher salt and black pepper.

    Spray loaf pan with cooking spray and place roasted potatoes in the bottom of the pan.

    Top with mozzarella and ricotta cheese.

  • 12

    Pour eggs over potatoes but do not overfill.

  • 13

    Bake at 375° for 25-35 minutes until puffed and lightly browned. Eggs will fall once removed from oven.

    NOTE: The cafe also serves a version with bacon or with just cheese (no potatoes in either), so feel free to experiment with extra ingredients. I think that this would be great with mushrooms too.
