Ingredients
  • Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ large yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ - ½ teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 1 pound petite cut frozen broccoli florets
  • 8 eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
Instructions
  1. Arrange oven rack to the center position and preheat the broiler.
  2. Heat a 12-inch nonstick oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil, sliced yellow onion, minced garlic and red chili flakes.
  3. Sauté until softened, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add the frozen petit cut broccoli florets and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the broccoli is heated through, about 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, whisk the eggs with salt and ground black pepper.
  6. When the broccoli is heated through, pour the eggs over the vegetables. Using a heatproof spatula, stir the eggs and vegetables together, lifting some of the cooked eggs from the bottom of the pan.
  7. Spread the vegetables evenly in the pan, turn off the burner, and sprinkle with the grated sharp cheddar cheese.
  8. Place the pan on the center rack in the oven and cook under the broiler for about 5-7 minutes, or until the eggs are set and the frittata is browned in places.
  9. Remove the frittata from the oven and let it rest for 5 minutes in the pan. With a spatula gently release the frittata from the bottom of the pan and transfer to a large plate.
  10. Cut into 6-8 pieces and serve warm.
