Broccoli-Cheddar Frittata

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 to 25 minutes

1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped broccoli
1 small carrot, diced, optional
1/4 cup water
8 eggs
1/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons mustard
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon chopped green onion 

In 10-inch nonstick skillet, combine broccoli, carrot and water. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, or until tender, stirring occasionally to break up broccoli; drain well.

In large bowl, beat together eggs, milk, mustard, salt and pepper until blended. Add broccoli mixture, cheese and green onion; mix well.

Coat same skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot. Pour in egg mixture and cook over low to medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes, or until eggs are almost set.

Remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 8 to 10 minutes, or until eggs are completely set and no visible liquid egg remains. Cut into wedges. Yields 4 to 8 servings.

After removing from heat, frittata can be broiled, 6 inches from heat, until eggs are completely set and no visible liquid egg remains, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Lighter Option: 

Recipe can be made with reduced-fat cheese, if desired.
