1/4 cup water

2 tsp. prepared mustard
1 tsp. seasoned salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (3 oz.)
1 Tbsp. chopped green onion


Step 1 COMBINE broccoli, carrot, if desired, and water in 10-inch nonstick skillet. COOK over medium heat until tender, stirring occasionally to break up broccoli, about 10 minutes; drain well.
Step 2 BEAT eggs, milk, mustard, salt and pepper in large bowl until blended. ADD broccoli mixture, cheese and green onion; mix well.
Step 3 COAT same skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot. POUR IN egg mixture; cook over low to medium heat until eggs are almost set, 8 to 10 minutes.
Step 4 REMOVE from heat. COVER and LET STAND until eggs are completely set and no visible liquid egg remains, 8 to 10 minutes. CUT into wedges.

Insider Info

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.
