2 tablespoons butter
2 shallots, chopped
5 to 6 baby Yukon Gold potatoes, finely chopped

2 6-ounce cans tuna, drained and flaked
8 eggs
2 teaspoons hot sauce
1/4 cup milk or half-n-half

Heat broiler and place oven rack in center of oven.

In a bowl, beat eggs with hot sauce, milk or half-n-half. Pour eggs into the skillet and stir in herbs. Let the eggs set and brown along the edges and on the bottom.
