Recipe of the Day - Broccoli & Cheddar Mini Frittatas
Olive Oil Spray
1 c chopped steamed broccoli
2 c egg substitute
2 ozs (1 cup) finely shredded Cabot's 75% Light Cheddar Cheese, or your favorite low-fat Cheddar
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly mist 8 cups of a nonstick standard muggin tin with the olive oil spray.
Divide the broccoli evenly among the cups (2 Tbsp in each). Then divide the egg substitute evenly among the cups (1/4 c each). Bake the frittatas for 7-9 minutes, or until almost set.
Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the tops of the frittatas. Bake for 8-10 minutes longer, or until the egg is no longer runny and the cheese is melted. Transfer the muffin tin to a cooling rack and allow the frittatas to rest for 2 minutes before serving.
Makes 4 (2 frittata) servings.

Frozen Cut Broccoli
1 egg per frittata being made
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Drop a couple pieces of broccoli in each cup of a standard muffin pan.
Beat all eggs together and spoon or pour egg mixture in to cups until near full. Bake for 7-9 minutes or until almost set.
Sprinkle the cheese over the top of the frittatas and bake for an additional 8-10 minutes until egg is no longer runny and cheese is melted.
*I paired mine with a peach and spinach salad topped with poppyseed dressing for lunch.
**NOTE** You may notice I did not use olive oil or any other kind of spray. The reason this is is because I used my new Pampered Chef Muffin Pan. It has a nonstick coating and there is absolutely NO need for any type of spray or oil. Even with eggs and cheese!! Amazing right?
