Broccoli and Cheddar Frittata Print Email

4 large eggs
4 large egg whites
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small red onion, cut in half, then thinly sliced into half-moons
2 cups chopped cooked broccoli
1/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
2 ounces extra-sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (1/2 cup)

Preheat the broiler.

Combine the whole eggs, egg whites, and water in a medium bowl and whisk well.

In a medium ovenproof nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until it begins to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the broccoli and cook for another 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables in the skillet, covering them evenly. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and let cook until the egg mixture has set around th edges of the pan but is still somewhat liquid in the middle, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle with the cheese.

Place the skillet under the broiler about 2 inches from the heat until the surface is set and golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Be careful not to overcook or the egg mixture will become tough.

Cut the frittata into 8 wedges and serve. - serves 4 - Ellie Krieger, The Food You Crave.
