In a bowl, beat the eggs with milk and grated Parmigiano Reggiano PDO cheese. Adjust salt and pepper, then add the vegetables.

Pour the egg mixture, cover with an aluminium foil and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C for about 25 minutes.
Cut the onions into rounds and cook them in a frying pan with oil and a pinch of salt until soft and transparent. Add 2-3 spoons of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena PGI and caramelise them for some minutes.
