Frittatas are easy to personalize. Add leftover chopped roasted vegetables, cooked grains or even shredded chicken to change up this meal.

Prep time: 10 min / Cook Time: 25 min

Serves 6

SmartPoints per serving: 5


11 large eggs

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 small uncooked onion(s), thinly sliced (about 1 cup)

2 cup(s) cooked broccoli, chopped

1 pinch kosher salt, (or to taste)

1 pinch black pepper, freshly ground (or to taste)

1⁄2 cup(s) low fat shredded cheddar cheese, sharp variety


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F; position rack in middle of oven.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs; set aside.
  3. In a 10-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add onion and cook, stirring, until it begins to soften, 4 minutes. Add broccoli and cook, stirring, until warmed through, 2 minutes more. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Pour eggs over vegetables, covering them evenly; cook, gently lifting and pushing cooked edges toward center, allowing liquid egg to fill space, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and transfer pan to oven. Bake until frittata is golden brown and puffed up, 12-15 minutes (frittata should be just slightly soft in center). Transfer frittata to a cutting board, cut in 6 wedges and serve immediately.
