Tender-crisp asparagus and bright-red bell peppers flavor this easy egg dish. A gentle flip at the end of cooking turns both sides golden brown.
Updated May 3, 2010

Ingredients

  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 lb fresh asparagus spears, trimmed, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 small red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 cartons (8 oz each) fat-free cholesterol-free egg product (2 cups) or 8 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Steps

  • 1
    In 10-inch nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium-high heat. Add asparagus and bell pepper; cook 3 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until crisp-tender. Remove from heat; place cooked vegetables in medium bowl. Stir egg product, basil and salt into vegetables.

    In same skillet, add remaining 2 teaspoons oil and the egg mixture. Cook over medium heat about 5 minutes or until bottom is lightly browned and top is set, lifting edges occasionally to allow uncooked egg mixture to flow to bottom of skillet.
  • 3
    Place skillet-size heatproof plate, upside down, on top of skillet. Turn plate and skillet over; slide frittata back into skillet, browned side up. Cook until bottom is lightly browned. Invert onto serving plate if desired. Cut into wedges.
