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