Veggie Frittata

Veggie Frittata 

I woke up early this morning and was inspired to make a good breakfast to start the day.  My youngest daughter called last night asking how to cook a breakfast casserole without the bread cubes called for in the recipe.  So today's post is in honor of her and her desire to cook and eat low carb.  This recipe can be made with any low carb veggies and you may even add bacon, ham, or sausage.  Different combinations will yield a different and delicious taste each time.  A  Frittata is great for breakfast or lunch and is good warm or cold!.  Use your imagination and taste buds and start creating your own perfect Frittata.




Low Carb Veggie Frittata



Ingredients
6 eggs
1/3 cup of milk
salt and pepper
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 cup asparagus cut into 1" pieces
1/2 cup sweet red pepper cut into 1" strips
2 slices of red onion cut into 1" strips
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 roma tomatoes sliced

Saute asparagus, red pepper, and onion in a skillet with a little olive oil just until slightly tender.  Remove from heat and let cool slightly.  Mix eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and nutmeg in bowl.  Add veggie mix to egg mixture and pour into an 8x8 baking dish sprayed with a little olive oil.  Sprinkle cheese on top and add tomato slices.  Salt and pepper each tomato.  Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.



Buon Appetito!
