Broccoli and Cheddar Frittata

I made a lots of cookies lastweek using a lot of egg yolk,I save the white eggs,to use up later, just try to make a simple dish,is similar with omelet the only different we have to broil in to the oven for a few minutes.so if you guys had leftover white eggs,this recipe is very easy:)

This recipe adapted from Healthy Appetite with Ellie Krieger   except I only use white eggs and fresh chopped broccoli.Ingredients :

  • 8-10 white eggs
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 small red onion sliced (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cups chopped fresh broccoli
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese (2 ounces)
Directions :

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. whisk white egg and Pour the  white eggs 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
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.

I just saw a recipe of using cauliflower on Lizzy's blog and here's another one. Something different for us because caulis are like most of the time added in soups and stir fried.
