Parmesan Frittata (from Mark Bittman's "Food Matters")

Parmesan Frittata (from Mark Bittman's

Introduction

I don't like eggs very much, but when beaten with the parmesan, it loses a bit of the eggy omelet taste. SO GOOD and will keep you full all morning!
The real recipe doesn't specify the vegetables to use, but I think these taste best. Potatoes, red bell peppers, tomatoes, and corn all work well in this, too!
(picture shows tomatoes, but these are not necessary)

Ingredients

    1 egg
    2 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
    1 tsp. olive oil
    2 tbsp. finely chopped onion
    1 cup chopped broccoli (if frozen, you don't have to thaw it first)
    2 cups fresh spinach


Directions

- Beat the egg and parmesan together (the more whipped, the better). Add salt & pepper if desired.
- Heat the broiler (used at the end of cooking - optional, though)
- Heat oil in a small skillet (I use an 8" nonstick) on the stove at medium heat.
- Add onions and cook approx. 3 minutes until translucent, but not brown.
- Add spinach.
- When spinach is wilted, add the broccoli and any other vegetables you're using. Add some salt & pepper if desired.
- Cook until broccoli is browned a bit and the vegetables look a little drier.
- Reduce the heat to low/medium (#3 on my electric stove).
- Add basil to vegetables.
- Using a spoon, spoon the egg over the whole vegetable mixture. Do not stir! Let it sit on the stove for about 5 minutes or more, until the egg is jiggly, but no longer liquid.
To finish, put the skillet under the broiler for approximately 60-90 seconds (until slightly browned).

Cut into wedges & serve. Enjoy!
