Vegetable Frittata

Introduction

This no-fuss Italian egg dish is baked in the pan, and there's no need to master omelet-flipping skills -- you put the filling on top. The recipe makes four portions, each of them about the same size as a two-egg omelet.

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    4 ounces white mushrooms, cleaned, trimmed, and thinly sliced
    1/3 cup sliced red onion
    5 large eggs
    4 large egg whites
    1 teaspoon chopped fresh herbs (thyme, oregano, or basil)
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    4 small plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
    8 tablespoons shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

1. Heat broiler. Coat a 9- or 10-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet with vegetable cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and onion; sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out skillet, coat again with cooking spray, and return to medium-high heat.

2. Meanwhile, whisk eggs, egg whites, herbs, salt, and pepper together in a medium bowl; pour into hot skillet. Cook, without stirring, until eggs begin to set, about 2 minutes, lifting up edge with a heatproof rubber spatula while tilting skillet and letting uncooked portion flow underneath.

3. Arrange tomato slices and sautéed vegetables in concentric circles on top. Continue cooking frittata until eggs are golden-brown on bottom and almost set on top, 2 to 3 minutes more.

4. Sprinkle mozzarella around edge of frittata. Transfer skillet to broiler and broil until cheese melts and begins to brown, about 2 minutes. Cut frittata into quarters. One serving equals one of the quarters.

Topping Your Frittata
There's almost an endless variety and practically no limit to the quantity of vegetables you can put in a frittata, because veggies are free. And you don't have to limit yourself to vegetables: An apple tastes great with eggs and cheese. Start experimenting with:

Apple cinnamon (eliminate herbs and vegetables)

Broccoli

Broccoli rabe

Caramelized onion

Portobello mushroom and garlic

Red, green, and yellow bell peppers

Spinach and onion

Tomato and basil
