  1. Preheat your oven to 400ºF. Whisk eggs in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. 
  2. Place a large oven-safe non-stick or cast iron pan over high heat to the point that it’s smoking. Add oil then eggs. Stir in onions, potatoes, chilies, mushrooms and parsley. Transfer pan to oven and bake until the top is golden, about 10–15 minutes.
