|Cheesy Broccoli Frittata|
We loved this recipe!
We've never made a frittata before...it's so easy and yummy, we're looking forward to making many variations soon! Frittata's can be made with either whole eggs or egg whites for those watching their cholesterol.
We were given a recipe book recently and came across a recipe for a Sicilian Frittata. It sounded great, but ultimately we ended up changing it quite a bit to fit the Dukan diet. Nix the potatoes, nix the Italian blend of cheese...etc. After we get back from our business trip we're hoping to make a Chinese Frittata.
Oh, we made a mistake and mixed in the fat free cheddar cheese into the egg, but it really was supposed to be sprinkled only on the top. It ended up being great with the cheese mixed in and we'll probably continue to mix the cheese into the egg mixture and nix the cheese on top.
Serves 2 - we didn't have any starch with this, but we were still full
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15-20 minutes
6 eggs or 3/4 c. egg whites plus 1/3 c. egg whites
1/3 c. water
1 1/2 c. broccoli, chopped into small pieces
1/2 c. turkey, chopped into small pieces
1/2 c. shallots, chopped into small pieces
2 cloves garlic
1/4 t. kosher salt
1/8 t. pepper
1/2 t. dried thyme
1/2 c. fat free cheddar cheese
1/4 c. grated parmesan cheese
In a skillet, add a small amount of olive oil over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add shallots and garlic, saute for a couple minutes until shallots are soft. Add broccoli, cover and let steam for a couple minutes until broccoli is tender. In the meantime, mix egg whites, salt, pepper, thyme and cheeses well. Add turkey to broccoli, mix, then pour egg mixture evenly over broccoli mixture. We used a spatula to even everything out. Cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until eggs are done. Cut and serve.
Enjoy...we sure did!
