  • Transfer half of the mixture to a blender; process until mostly smooth, about 15 seconds. Return the blended mixture to the bowl and stir to combine.

  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish; sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar. Bake until set and lightly browned, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with scallions, if desired, and serve.
