Vegetable Ricotta Frittatas
From All Day I Dream About Food

1 cup whole milk ricotta
6 eggs
half medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup broccoli, chopped and lightly steamed
1/2 cup red pepper, chopped
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 350F and grease a jumbo 6-muffin pan (or a regular 12-muffin pan) very well.  In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and ricotta until thoroughly combined. Whisk in onion and garlic, and season with salt and pepper. Divide broccoli and red pepper between prepared muffin tins. Sprinkle with shredded cheese.  Pour egg mixture over vegetables, filling each muffin cup to about 3/4 full. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until tops are puffed and slightly browned, and a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Quickly run a sharp knife around edges of frittatas while they are still in the pan. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Leftover frittatas can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. Reheat gently in the microwave before serving. Serves 6. Each serving has a total of 5.3g of carbs.

Total Time: 20 min
Makes: 4 servings

1 carton (16 oz) cholesterol-free fat-free egg product
1/4 teaspoon salt-free garlic-and-herb seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt

2. In 10-inch nonstick ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions; cook and stir 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium-low. Pour in egg mixture. Cook 6 to 9 minutes, gently lifting edges of cooked portions with spatula so that uncooked egg mixture can flow to bottom of skillet, until set.
