Ricotta and Broccoli Frittata Recipe, with Bacon
– 1 cup of egg substitute
– 1/2 cup fat-free ricotta cheese
– 1/2 cup broccoli, chopped
– 1/4 cup fat free milk
– 1/4 cup fresh cherry tomatoes, quartered
– 1/4 cup chives, fresh, chopped
– 1/4 cup parsley, fresh, chopped
– ¼ cup red onions, finely chopped
– 1 tbsp fresh basil, finely chopped
– 6 slices turkey bacon, cooked and finely chopped
– ½ tsp salt
– ¼ tsp black pepper
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Spray a 9-inch nonstick, ovenproof skillet generously with nonstick, butter flavored cooking spray and set over medium heat.
Then, in a small bowl, combine eggs, milk, broccoli, tomatoes, herbs, bacon, salt and pepper; pour into hot skillet. Drop ricotta into egg mixture, spoonful by spoonful. Cook, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, until eggs are set and only the surface is runny, about 3 minutes. Place skillet in oven and bake, until cooked through and slightly browned, about 3 to 5 minutes.
