Broccoli And Bell Pepper Frittata
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- 6 large eggs
2 Tablespoons milk
1 and 1/2 cups broccoli florets
1 medium bell pepper (red or green) - chopped
1/4 medium onion - chopped
1/4 shredded cup Asiago cheese (or 1/3 cup shredded Cheddar)
1 Tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Place a 10-inch oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil. Once hot (oil will gently ripple), add the onions and bell pepper. Saute - stirring occasionally - until the onions are tender - about 6 minutes. Add the broccoli and stir. Add 2 Tablespoons of water and cover pan. Reduce heat to medium and let the broccoli steam for 2 minutes or until slightly tender. Uncover and remove from heat. Let set 4 or 5 minutes (so cool enough to not cook egg on contact).
In a medium mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the milk and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Return skillet to burner and set heat to medium. Add a little more olive oil (maybe 2 teaspoons) and stir broccoli around so it's distributed fairly even in the skillet. Pour the egg mixture over the broccoli. Cook for about 3 minutes until the edges begin to set. Sprinkle cheese evenly over the top.
Transfer skillet to preheated oven and bake until the center is set - about 12 to 14 minutes.
Cut into wedges and serve warm.
An egg dish with broccoli, bell pepper, onion and Asiago cheese - a fresh, fun and fancy frittata that's perfect for brunch or any meal. Just as good at room temperature as it is warm.
