Fast 'N Fresh Frittata



Fast 'N Fresh Frittata
A frittata is an open-faced, Italian omelet filled with vegetables. Our version boasts fresh asparagus, chives and potatoes.
Ingredients:
3   tablespoons snipped fresh chives
1   teaspoon olive oil
1/2   pound fresh asparagus spears, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
3   cups frozen potatoes O'Brien with onions and peppers, thawed
1   garlic clove, pressed
3/4   cup (3 ounces) reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1/2   teaspoon salt
1/8   teaspoon ground black pepper
1   carton (16 ounces) pasteurized refrigerated egg product
2   small plum tomatoes, sliced
   Additional snipped fresh chives (optional)
Directions:
  1. Snip chives with Kitchen Shears. Heat oil in (10-in.) Skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add asparagus, potatoes and garlic pressed with Garlic Press; cook and stir 4 minutes. Reduce heat to low. Sprinkle chives, 1/2 cup of the cheese, salt and black pepper over potato mixture. Pour egg product over potato mixture. Cover; cook 14-15 minutes or until egg mixture is set in center. Remove from heat.
  2. Meanwhile, using Ultimate Mandoline fitted with v-shaped blade, slice tomatoes. Arrange tomato slices in an overlapping circular pattern over top of frittata. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover, let stand until cheese is melted. Garnish with additional snipped chives, if desired. Cut into wedges.

Frozen potatoes thaw quickly in the microwave. Place them in the Small Micro-Cooker® and follow the directions on the package for thawing in the microwave.

Pasteurized refrigerated egg product comes in cartons and can usually be found near the eggs in the grocery store. Made of 99% egg whites, it is a cholesterol-free, fat-free and low-calorie product. Use it in place of whole eggs in many your favorite egg dishes.

Use the Small Nylon Turner to cut the frittata into wedges without damaging the pan's nonstick surface.
