Insider Info

Packed with broccoli, eggs and cheese, this is a delicious way to include protein and vegetables in a hearty breakfast or skillet supper.

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

Three ways to serve a frittata: Serve wedges right from pan, slide uncut frittata topside-up onto platter, or invert it onto platter to show its nicely-browned bottom.

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