Ingredients

  • 2 cups liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, sliced

  3. Spray a large, ovenproof, nonstick skillet with nonfat cooking spray and set over medium heat.
  4. Add in bell pepper and green onions and cook, stirring constantly, until the green onions are just wilted, 30 seconds to 1 minute.

    Ok this sounds really good.  I’m not super cook, but love frittatas, however I read this five times and still dont see when you put the goat cheese on top.  Before baking, after??   Love an answer. thanks-Ruth

      Smyoker, my bad. I forgot to include that part in my post. The cheese goes on right before it goes into the oven. I’ve updated the post to include this in the instructions.
