Broccoli and Cheddar Frittata

Source: The Food Network

ingredients

  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cups chopped cooked broccoli
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded extra-sharp Cheddar (2 ounces)

preparation

  1. Separate 4 of the eggs, putting the whites into a medium sized bowl and saving the yolks for another purpose. Add the remaining 4 whole eggs and 2 tablespoons of water to the whites and whisk well.
  2. In a medium ovenproof nonstick skillet heat the oil over a medium flame. Add the onion and cook until it begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Add the broccoli and cook for another 2 minutes. Season with salt and a few turns of pepper.
  3. 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 the edges but is somewhat liquid in the middle, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle with the cheese.
  4. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. 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.
  5. Cut the frittata into 8 wedges and serve.
