Broccoli and Cheddar Frittata

Serves: 6 | Prep: 10min |Cook: 25min |SmartPoints: 1

 Ingredients

  • 11 large egg(s)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small uncooked onion(s), thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cup(s) cooked broccoli, chopped
  • 1 pinch kosher salt, (or to taste)
  • 1 pinch black pepper, freshly ground (or to taste)
  • 1/2 cup(s) WeightWatchers Reduced Fat Mexican style blend shredded cheese

 Instructions

Preheat oven to 400°F; position rack in middle of oven.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs; set aside.

In a 10-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add onion and cook, stirring, until it begins to soften, 4 minutes. Add broccoli and cook, stirring, until warmed through, 2 minutes more. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Pour eggs over vegetables, covering them evenly; cook, gently lifting and pushing cooked edges toward center, allowing liquid egg to fill space, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and transfer pan to oven.

Bake until frittata is golden brown and puffed up, 12-15 minutes (frittata should be just slightly soft in center). Transfer frittata to a cutting board, cut in 6 wedges and serve immediately.

Serving size: 1 wedge
