Broccoli Frittata


1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen, chopped broccoli, thawed
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. minced garlic
5-6 slices pre-cooked bacon, chopped
6 eggs
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 cup shredded cheese
paprika

Preheat oven broiler.  In a large ovenproof nonstick skillet, heat oil.  Add broccoli, garlic and bacon.  Cook 4-5 minutes on medium, stirring now and then.  In a bowl, whisk eggs, salt and pepper.  Pour over broccoli and cook on medium for 5 minutes or until eggs are nearly set.  Sprinkle evenly with cheese and paprika.  Broil for 1-2 minutes, just until eggs are set and cheese is melted.  This can be served warm or at room temp.  Serves 6.

Comments:  I tell everyone to Think With Your Taste Buds and that is exactly what I did with this recipe.  The original called for asparagus but I'm not an asparagus fan but do love broccoli so I switched.  Also, while Thinking With My Taste Buds I decided to add some bacon.  These turned out to be a really good combination.  I added a touch of paprika over the cheese before broiling which made it even more appealing.  I've decided that the next time I make this dish I'm going to add a little onion to the broccoli and possibly even some red bell peppers.  Bet that will be good too.

Comments from Carol:  The Frittata was great!  I think that bacon, broccoli and cheese combo with the eggs is a super thing to put together for lunch or dinner and very useful.  Also very healthy!  I was also wondering how that would be with cauliflower and ham and cheese.  It's such a great vehicle for vegs!

Comment from Martha:  The idea for using cauliflower and ham and cheese sounds great.  You are now doing what I try to teach everyone... Thinking With Your Taste Buds
