Method

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 10-inch springform pan with parchment paper and set aside.

  • Step 2

    Install the disc spindle in the XL Precision Processor Bowl. Set the adjustable slicing disc to Setting 3 and place the disc on the spindle. If your unit comes with the reversible slicing/shredding disc, place the disc slicing side up.

    Install the lid and place a carrot in the small section of the feed chute. Install the pusher over the carrot, select DISC, then push the carrot through the chute. Repeat with remaining carrots. Remove the lid and transfer carrots to a large bowl and set aside.

  • Step 4

    Wipe the bowl clean. Install the lid and place a zucchini half in into feed chute with medium pusher installed. Select DISC, and using the small and medium pusher, guide the zucchini through the chute. Repeat with remaining zucchini. Transfer zucchini to large bowl with carrot and set aside.

  • Step 5

    Wipe the bowl clean. Install the lid and place a potato half in the large section of the feed chute. Install the pusher over the potato, select DISC, then push the potato through the chute. Repeat with remaining potato. Transfer potato to large bowl with carrot and zucchini and set aside.

  • Step 6

    In a separate large bowl, combine eggs, melted butter, and half and half. Whisk until well combined.

  • Step 7

    Add nutmeg, basil, thyme, salt, pepper, and flour, and whisk to combine. Fold in cheddar cheese.

  • Step 8
