Step 2

In a large ovenproof skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Once it's completely melted add egg mixture to skillet. Quickly layer the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, roasted red peppers, and broccoli on top of the eggs. Cook for four minutes over medium heat without stirring or moving the eggs in any way, then carefully transfer the skillet to the preheated oven.
