Cheddar-Apple Frittata

Prep time: 2 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

  • 2 tsp butter
  • 1 apple, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 Tbs water
  • 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 strips precooked bacon

1. Preheat broiler.

2. Melt butter over medium-high heat in a 10-inch oven-proof skillet (e.g., cast iron). Add apple slices and sauté 1 minute, or until softened.

3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk eggs, egg whites and water until frothy. Stir in cheddar, salt and pepper.

4. Put bacon strips on top of apples. Pour egg mixture into skillet. Cook 2 minutes, until bottom and sides of frittata are set. (Resist the urge to stir!) Carefully transfer skillet to broiler and cook 6 inches from heat, 2 to 3 minutes, or until top is set. Cut into wedges.
